Neil Redfearn opens up on Leeds United contract situation and Massimo Cellino relationship

Neil Redfearn says that he has been assured by Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino that he will be the club’s new manager.

Leeds United caretaker-manager Neil Redfearn has revealed his recent discussions with club owner Massimo Cellino about his long-term future at the club.

The Englishman has been put in charge of the first team following the dismissal of Darko Milanic on Saturday. Redfearn has yet to sign a contract with Leeds, but he has revealed that he is close to doing so.

During a press conference on Thursday, the 49-year-old confirmed that he has been assured by Cellino that he will be given the job on a full-time basis.

Redfearn, who has been in charge of the Leeds academy since 2009 and has been the caretaker-manager on a number of occasions since, has also given an insight into his relationship with the Italian entrepreneur.

Let’s wait and watch.
