LUFC Christiansen - My Future Is In The Hands Of The Club
Leeds United head coach Thomas Christiansen admits his future is in the hands of the club after another poor defeat.
Leeds made it five defeats from their last seven games as they conceded four goals at home for a second time in a row, as this time, they lost 4-1 to Cardiff City.
Ill-discipline is also proving to be a major problem for Christiansen as he saw his side receive a fourth red card in six games and a third in the first half.
Fans showed their disgruntlement in the second half with chants of 'You don`t know what you are doing,` when he substituted striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga, and with the pressure growing on Christiansen, who only arrived at the club in the summer, he knows his situation depends on results, something he isn`t delivering at the moment.
"We know that my situation depends on the results, on the chairman, on Victor and on what they think is best for the team," Christiansen told his post-match press conference.
"I do the best for the team, I want the best for Leeds, and this is my work and this is what I am going to do.
"If it`s their decision that they want to find somebody better then I cannot do anything about that.
"This is their decision and I will then go away but with the head high that I have done the best for the team and the club."
Leeds have slipped from a play-off place at the turn of the year to tenth in the Championship and they are now seven points off a play-off place. They have also crashed out of the FA Cup to League Two side Newport County.
With a tough run of fixtures during February, the pressure is now firmly on for Christiansen who is having to work with a depleted squad through suspensions and injuries.
