26-yr-old goes from hero to zero: Three Leeds players Christiansen must axe to save his job
COMMENT By Danny Wright
Thomas Christiansen has found himself in the middle of his first crisis as Leeds United manager as cries for him to be sacked reached a new high after the loss to Brentford on Saturday.
Since September, the Yorkshire giants have plummeted from top of the Championship standings to 10th in the table, with the idea of promotion back to the Premier League looking more like a pipe dream than any kind of achievable target.
Leeds are on a slippy slope and changes must be made if Christiansen wants to save his side’s season – and to most importantly, save his job.
Many of the players that were bought in the summer have under-performed while some of the stars of last season have also failed to exercise the form they were in while Garry Monk was at Elland Road.
Andrea Radrizzani moved to calm the situation last week, suggesting that no rash decision will be made in terms of sacking Christiansen at what is still an early stage of the season.
