Neil Redfearn’s association with Leeds United goes back to 2009.

On Saturday afternoon, Neil Redfearn was officially confirmed as the Leeds United manager on a full-time basis.

The Englishman was handed the first-team duties last weekend following the dismissal of Darko Milanic last weekend.

Redfearn had already been in charge of Leeds earlier this season, when he was made the caretaker-manager following the sacking of Dave Hockaday.

The 49-year-old has been part of the Leeds family since January 2009 when he was appointed the manager of the Under-18 side.

Below is a picture of Redfearn with the U18 squad five years ago.

Redfearn’s reign as the Leeds manager on Saturday did not start on the best of notes as the Whites went down 3-1 to Cardiff City away from home in the Championship, but optimism remains high in the camp.
