Christiansen was appointed Leeds manager last summer

Thomas Christiansen has left his role as Leeds head coach.

The Dane, who took the job last summer, has paid the price for a horror run of form which culminated in Saturday’s 4-1 home Championship defeat to Cardiff.

The Whites have failed to win since their 2-1 Boxing Day victory at Burton, a run which has seen them fall out of the running for the play-offs and also be knocked out of the FA Cup by League Two Newport.
