NEIL: WE CAN BE REALLY SUCCESSFUL
ANOTHER turbulent week at Leeds has seen sporting director Nicola Salerno reportedly resign, but boss Neil Redfearn hopes his own tenure is not about to come to an end.
Redfearn’s assistant Steve Thompson was suspended until the end of the season last week after being handed a letter by Salerno – much to the astonishment of almost everyone outside of the Leeds boardroom.
The Leeds United Supporters’ Trust have this week written an open letter to disqualified owner Massimo Cellino and the board, begging for clarity on a variety of issues including Redfearn’s position.
And the popular boss, 49, admits he wants to stay on at Elland Road.
“For the first time in a long time this club is together, both on the pitch and in the stands,” said Redfearn.
“For me, you want to be about it, because you want to be involved in something that’s going to be successful and I honestly believe that this football club, in the next couple of seasons, can be really successful.
“It’s a great club that is just starting to get to its feet and I think, perhaps, the football world is realising that.”
