​Leeds part ways with Thomas Christiansen

Leeds United have parted company with manager Thomas Christiansen after less than six months.

The club were hoping that Christiansen would be able to turn things around, but six games without a win in the Championship mean that Leeds' playoff hopes are slipping with each passing game.

They are now in tenth place after a defeat to Cardiff at the weekend, and the manager was sacked less than 24 hours after that result.

"Leeds United can confirm that head coach Thomas Christiansen has left the club," a statement read.

"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."

Christiansen began his job in June after Garry Monk departed the club. His record stood at 15 wins, six draws and 14 defeats in 35 games.
