LUFC McCormack - Redfearn gets my support for job

Leeds United striker Ross McCormack says the club should give the vacant managers position at Elland Road to Neil Redfearn.

Redfearn took charge of his first game as caretaker manager on Saturday at Bristol City as they eventually strolled to an easy 3-0 win against nine men.

The vastly experienced Redfearn has been at the club three years in charge of the youth and reserve teams and McCormack, who spent a lot of time playing for him in the reserves last season, says he has his support for the job on a permanent basis. Speaking in the Sun Newspaper , McCormack said, "Neil`s got the qualities - so why not give him the job?

"We`ve won 3-0 at Bristol City, albeit against nine men, and not many teams come here and do that.

"I played under Neil a lot in the reserves last year, so I know him well and he gets my support."


McCormack was in the thick of the action all afternoon at Bristol.

A good move by Leeds saw McCormack tee up Robert Snodgrass for the first five minutes before half time.

Minutes later he was caught by Bristol defender James Wilson, with the Bristol defender shown a straight red card, as he was the last man.

In the second half, Yannick Bolasie was sent off for two bookable offences in the space of two minutes to leave Bristol with a mountain to climb.

Leeds controlled the game thereafter and McCormack had three goals ruled out for offside before he eventually made it 2-0 with eleven minutes remaining with a good left foot strike under the body of David James.

Luciano Becchio completed the scoring for Leeds in the dying minutes to earn Redfearn a winning start.
