PICTURE: Neil Redfearn’s career record as Leeds United caretaker-manager

Neil Redfearn has done well as the Leeds United caretaker-manager, but should he still get the job on a full-time basis?

Leeds United look likely to appoint Neil Redfearn as their full-time manager.

The 49-year-old has been installed as the first-team head coach for the moment following the dismissal of Darko Milanic on Saturday.

Redfearn was in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit earlier this season when Dave Hockaday was dismissed.

During that period, the Englishman picked up three wins and one draw from four games to push Leeds close to the Championship playoff spots.

Redfearn was widely hailed for his achievements in those four matches, especially as Milanic failed to win any of the games he was in charge of.

However, the Englishman has not always proved so successful when appointed the Leeds interim manager on previous occasions, as the following picture shows.

Redfearn’s overall record as Leeds caretaker-manager is pretty decent without being overly spectacular, but that does not mean that he cannot do the job successfully on a full-time basis.

The Englishman knows the current Leeds team thoroughly and is the best available option for club owner Massimo Cellino at the moment.
