Leeds defender Warnock unhappy at being dropped - Report

Leeds United defender Stephen Warnock is unhappy at being dropped.

Leeds United face more drama, with reports emerging regarding Stephen Warnock.

Monday's Sun newspaper carries an article suggesting the former Aston Villa defender has is so frustrated at being dropped, he has complained to the PFA.

His reason for doing so, revolves around alleged interference from Leeds owner Massimo Cellino on team selection, the paper claims.

Warnock, 32, has made nine out of a possible 11 Championship starts this season, including in new manager Darko Milanic's first game as manager away to Brentford.

The left-back was dropped to the bench for the 0-0 draw with Reading in midweek, and was also an unused substitute against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

Warnock may feel he has a case to complain, but given the fact he has been named on the bench and is in the set up, his grounds to do so may be reduced. What this means for his future remains unclear at this point.

New manager Darko Milanic however made a specific point last week, that selection decisions are down to him alone.

He told The Yorkshire Evening Post regarding Warnock: "If you have a president like our president, one man, it’s normal that people or (the media) talk about this. It’s not my problem. It’s my decision."
