'We have a problem' - Christiansen blasts Leeds faithful after win v Norwich

Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen blasted the Elland Road crowd after they booed striker Jay Roy Grot during the 1-0 home win over Norwich City on Saturday.

Pontus Jansson’s first half header, his second goal of the season, was enough to secure the three points over the Canaries in front of the Leeds fans, leaving the Whites sitting just one point and one place off the top six as they continue to hunt for a play off spot.

However, despite a clean sheet and the victory, Christiansen was less than happy with what he saw, and heard, during the 90 minutes, choosing to speak out about it after the game.

He was left furious over some individuals’ decision to boo substitute striker Jay Roy Grot, who came on with 10 minutes left to play, and insists that the club, both fans and players, must stick together if they want success in the future.

He told Radio Yorkshire, via their Twitter account: “I think we have a problem to criticise one of our players.

“We speak about we have to stay together, then we stay together in the best and the worst. Always together.”

Grot, a 19-year-old Dutch forward, has been a fringe figure for the Whites after arriving from NEC Nijmegen over the summer transfer window, having managed to make just 12 league appearances this season, every one of which has come from the substitutes’ bench.

In other Leeds United news, Noel Whelan has voiced his worries over one man and says the club must replace him in the January transfer window.
