Leeds United supporters are furious at the way Steve Thompson has been treated by the club.
Leeds United supporters have been left fuming after hearing the news that assistant manager Steve Thompson has been suspended until the end of the season.
Thompson was informed by Nicola Salerno of the club's decision this morning, with the Whites releasing a brief statement on their website about his dismissal earlier.
It is a dramatic turn of events at Elland Road at a point of the season when everything appeared to be going swimmingly.
Leeds have climbed the Championship table rapidly since the turn of the year and appeared to be laying the foundations for a strong campaign next year.
These plans have been rocked today with the news of Thompson's departure, though, and it remains to be seen how Neil Redfearn will react.
The Leeds boss confirmed at his press conference that he did not know of the club's plans to suspend Thompson, and the Daily Star says that he is furious at the news.
Redfearn has formed a strong bond with Thompson and his emotions at this present time are reflected by the Leeds support.
Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter from Leeds fans to Thompson's suspension.
Massive respect for Neil Redfearn, carried himself with dignity. Very tough situation, like Brian last year, he's the calm in a storm #lufc— Thom Kirwin (@Thomkirwin) April 2, 2015
Shocking what this club is putting Redders through #lufc— Tom Wilkinson (@tomwilko95) April 2, 2015
So we finally have the club and team moving in the right direction, seems like a good time to sack the assistant coach #lufc never easy— Christian West (@christian1968uk) April 2, 2015
Classic #LUFC that just as we appear to have turned a corner something ridiculous goes on to distract everyone. Why does it always happen?— Tom Hooper (@ThomHoops) April 2, 2015
