That’s all from us. Could this be the last sight of Neil Redfearn taking a press conference at Thorp Arch?
Redfearn admits he’s identified individuals who might be of benefit.
Given the type of person he is, Redfearn believes the owner must be undecided on his future.
“I can see the way forward”.
“The next step is playing good football.”
“I think the supporters feel a lot closer to the players.”
Sounds like Aidy White could be involved on Saturday. “I’m a fan of Aidy.”
“Would you want Steve Thompson back?” “Definitely”.
“Your one high point?”
NR: “just being in charge of Leeds United…if someone had told me as an 8 year old in the west stand.” #lufc
Redfearn set to go through shape and set plays tomorrow. Says players have been bright and he’s been impressed with the commitment.
The Sheffield Wednesday win has “been coming” from Redfearn’s perspective.
“I’m very fortunate to be in charge of Leeds United football club. It’s a real honour.” #lufc
“We’re coming to a point where the club’s going to be able to make some decisions. The club needs to make those decisions.”
When asked whether he sees it as his last game, Redfearn says he’s just focused on preparing for the game.
“The academy’s got to take a lot of credit for how these players have come in and performed.”
“We’ve relied on [Lewis Cook]”.
“I’m not allowed to speak to [Cellino],” admits Redfearn, even if he attends the Rotherham game.
“I think the powers that be have seen the division now.”
Redfearn says no discussions held over his future, but wants to sit down with the owner and discuss. Would it have to be on his terms? “No.”
“If you look at the situation I came into…to get ourselves safe and comfortably safe is an achievement.”
Here’s where Redfearn will be sat in a minute or two.
Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn is set to face the press prior to the Rotherham United match on Saturday.
We are live at Thorp Arch to bring you the updates from the press conference.
The clash with Rotherham could end up being Redfearn’s last game in charge of Leeds.
His contract as head coach is meant to expire after the conclusion of the game, and there has not been any indication that it will be renewed before the end of the season.
Owner Massimo Cellino is also set to return from suspension next week, and there are doubts over whether he will want to retain Redfearn.
Cellino suspended Redfearn’s assistant manager, Steve Thompson, without consulting the head coach, arguably hindering his ability to win games.
Leeds ended a five match losing streak with a 2-1 victory against Sheffield Wednesday in a Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough at the weekend.
Goals came from Charlie Taylor and Steve Morison, who scored his second in two games.
