LUFC Redfearn - Players have been outstanding

Neil Redfearn finished his role as caretaker manager of Leeds United with a 3-2 win over Doncaster Rovers and he says the players have been outstanding for him whilst taking charge.

Redfearn says the players have been first class and he thanked them in his post-match chat with Yorkshire Radio.

Speaking on the show, Redfearn said, "I would like to go on record as saying, the lads have been outstanding for me.

"It is not easy, it is a difficult time when managers get the sack and the players are unsure what is happening but they have been first class in training. We haven`t always had the results or performances what we wanted but we have finished on a high today, which is good."


Redfearn was backed from the start by a number of the Leeds squad to take the job on a permanent basis, with Aidy White, Andy Lonergan, Ross McCormack, Robert Snodgrass and Darren O`Dea all going on record as saying he would be a good appointment on a permanent basis.

Leeds made a great start under Redfearn with a 3-0 win at Bristol City and Redfearn had the opportunity to stake his claims for the job on a permanent basis when he was given three more games to show his credentials.

Unfortunately for him, two defeats followed with a home defeat to Brighton and a poor performance in defeat at Coventry City costing him any chance of the job on a permanent basis.

He finished with a dramatic late win over Doncaster on Saturday, with the players showing their appreciation by running over to Redfearn following Luciano Becchio`s winner in stoppage time.

Redfearn took six points from a possible twelve in four games in charge following the sacking of Simon Grayson and he leaves Leeds in tenth place, three points outside the play-off places.
