Christiansen exits Elland Road

Leeds United are on the lookout for a new manager after parting company with Thomas Christiansen following a run of seven games without a win.

The Whites have dropped down to tenth place in the Championship as a result of their loss of form, which has now cost Christiansen his job.

The 44-year-old Dane, who played twice for the Spain national team, only took charge at Elland Road at the start of the season and made a bright start as his side were undefeated in their first nine games of the campaign.

However, they have been inconsistent since then and a 4-1 home trashing at the hands of Cardiff City on Saturday proved to be the final straw for the Elland Road board.

Christiansen had seemingly hinted at his fate in his post-match press conference at the weekend, telling reporters: "Of course we know that my situation depends on the results.

"I do the best for the team, I want the best for Leeds and this is my work and this is what I am going to do.

"If it's their decision that they want to find somebody better, I cannot do anything about that, this is their decision and I will then go away but with my head high that I have done the best for the team, for the club."

Leeds are back in action next Saturday when they make the short trip to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United.

The Whites are 7/2 to defeat the Blades, with the draw 13/5 and a 1-0 win for the visitors 11/1.
