The Leeds head coach has been excellent for the club.
Leeds United take on Nottingham Forest this weekend, with both teams enjoying an Indian Summer to their troubled seasons.
Leeds have gone through managers like underwear this season. Brian McDermott went in the summer, Dave Hockaday didn't last long and Darko Milanic was a managerial flop.
But through it all has emerged a promising coach in the form of Neil Redfearn. The local lad has brought some stability to the Leeds group and has helped them march away from relegation worries.
All in all, in his two stints as head coach this season, Redfearn has managed to secure 41 points from his 26 games in charge. If he was in the hotseat from the start of the season, who knows where Leeds would be.
However, he is not buying that.
Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post this week that he does not bother with hindsight:
“Hindsight’s great and it’s the easiest thing to go on about what might have been. Perhaps it could have been different but we’ve had a tough season.
“That’s the truth. It’s been hard, it’s been a struggle in parts so to talk about what we could have achieved isn’t really right."
Redfearn's managerial future remains up in the air. There is no doubt that the fans want him to remain as boss, but enigmatic owner Massimo Cellino may think differently.
But given the difference in form for Redfearn's Leeds compared to how they performed under the other coaches this season, Cellino would have to be stark raving not to give Redfearn a crack next term.
