Breaking news tonight is that Thomas Christiansen has lost his job at Leeds United after a poor run of results that has seen the campaign grind to a halt. There wasn’t much option for Andrea Radrizzani but he has done what he needed to do and it won’t have been easy for the owner.
Christiansen hasn’t helped himself and yesterday was the turning point for him in terms of having a bad run and the fans turning on you. Chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” and “sacked in the morning” could be heard ringing around areas of Elland Road and head-coaches and managers won’t last long after that happens. He said in his post-match press conference that he understands if the club don’t want him in charge anymore and that is man who is resigned to his fate. It wasn’t all his fault on the pitch, some of the players haven’t been performing, the sending offs are probably an indication that all wasn’t well in the Leeds United camp and injuries have also played a part. Another huge part was the players signed, Victor Orta shouldn’t get away without coming into focus, we have signed some very average players.
So it’s the end of the line for Thomas Christiansen and I will look into his time at Leeds United and what went wrong for him in the next couple of days. It all started so well but I think a severe lack of ideas has exposed a man who landed a job he had no right to, and fair play to him for that. The Championship has swallowed him up in the end, like so many managers and head-coaches and the next week or two will be so important for the club. It was only a few hours ago I posted and article saying it would be a huge few weeks and this is the first thing that needed to be done. Thomas Christiansen gave it his best shot, but unfortunately this was the correct decision and Andrea Radrizzani has got it bang on.
