It all started ever since his trusted assistant Steve Thompson was suspended, those turn of events have now left Leeds manager Neil Redfearn to be considering his position at Leeds.
The 49 year old former Bradford City midfielder had previously been in caretaker charge – and managed to over see an upturn in fortunes on the pitch. Despite the encouraging results, Redfern lost out on becoming permanent manager to Darko Milanic earlier in the season.
Milanic who was in charge of Sturm Graz before he took the job at Elland Road barely lasted six games as impatient owner Massimo Cellino, got impatient with the ex Sturm Graz boss. Ironcially Neil Redfern ended up replacing the man who replace him.
The Whites who have been in turmoil on and off the pitch, have found some form of stability since the ex Bradford player has been in charge at Elland Road. After hovering just over the Championship drop zone, Leeds are now in a respectable 13th position.
Redfearn who has won 10 out of the 26 games in charge has said that Thompson’s suspension could be ‘destabilising’ – and for a team like Leeds who have been in turmoil on and off the pitch most of the season, the last thing they would want is instability.
