Leeds United announced the departure of Thomas Christiansen last night after a seven-game winless run.
The Whites are currently in a slump and the club hierarchy has decided to part ways after the humiliating home defeat against Cardiff City.
It will be interesting to see who is chosen as a replacement for the remainder of this season.
Christiansen’s side have failed to show any signs of progress since his arrival eight months ago. The 44-year-old was Leeds’ sixth manager since 2014.
It is evident that the club is in desperate need of some stability. The next appointment could be the key to the club’s future.
The Whites have not played in the Premier League for quite some time now and the fans were expecting to fight for promotion this year. However, Leeds’ chances of securing promotion this season seem bleak.
The 56-year-old has already held talks with the Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta.
Reading boss Jaap Stam is another potential candidate who could take over at Elland Road.
how can anyone take the club seriously when we go through more managers than getting wins a season?

Gutted for him. Not his fault over red cards and Injuries and was a lovely man who felt for Leeds. Makes all the talk over “the project” look shallow.

Here we go again, why don’t u sack someone from behind the scenes instead. Should have given him full season at least. Pep was shite at Man City when he took over, now look 👍 fine the players Everytime they lose a game.

Been made a scapegoat for bad signings made by Orta. @andrearadri wanting to promote togetherness and has now contradicted himself.back to square 1 as per usual.Managers need control of signings. Albeit TC never had a plan B, not all his fault.
