Leeds United part company with manager Christiansen

Leeds United part company with manager Christiansen

Leeds, three-times English champions, lie 10th in the second-tier standings and have not recorded a league win since December 26.

Leeds United are set to act quickly and bring in a new manager after parting ways with Thomas Christiansen on Sunday night.

"The former England and Newcastle boss reportedly held discussions with chairman Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta following Saturday's match."

Christiansen took the job last summer following the departure of Garry Monk but has paid the price for a horror run of form.

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




The Whites are just seven points shy of the final play-off place now held by Bristol City who have 51 points and a five goal better difference.

It was the second consecutive home game in which Leeds had conceded four goals.

Christiansen's sacking comes off the back of a 4-1 hammering by Cardiff City at Elland Road.

The slump has been alarming considering that Leeds were 5th on Boxing Day following a 2-1 victory over Burton.

Leeds' poor recent run of results has seen the promotion hopefuls drop to 10th in the table and exit the FA Cup after a humbling defeat at the hands of League Two Newport.
