Leeds United Sack Thomas Christiansen

Leeds United have sacked head coach Thomas Christiansen after less than eight months in charge.

In a brief statement on Sunday night the club said:

Leeds United can confirm that head coach Thomas Christiansen has left the club.

Chairman Andrea Radrizzani and the Board of Directors would like to thank Thomas and his staff for their hard work over the past eight months.

The club will be making no further comment at this time.

On Saturday Leeds were hammered 4-1 at home to Cardiff City, who are managed by their former boss Neil Warnock.

The desperately disappointing result extended the club’s winless run to seven matches in all competitions, while it left the Yorkshire outfit 10th in the Championship, 7 points adrift of the top-6, and now 13 points behind the automatic promotion places.

The slump has been alarming considering that Leeds were 5th on Boxing Day following a 2-1 victory over Burton. However, a return of just two points from a possible 18 has cost Christiansen his job at Elland Road, meaning each of the last 12 managers (permanent & caretaker) have failed to reach the 100 match milestone.

According to reports Leeds will look to appoint a new boss within the next few days. Paul Heckingbottom, Steve McClaren, Simon Grayson, Paolo Sousa, Marco Silva & Slaven Bilic have emerged as some of the early contenders in the Next Leeds Manager Market.

Leeds are next in action away to Sheffield United on Saturday.
