Redfearn: This is what I want to create at Leeds United

Neil Redfearn is pleased with the environment at Elland Road.

Speaking to the official Leeds website, Redfearn has outlined what he wants to create whilst in charge of the Whites.

“We’ve got people fit and wanting to get in the team,” the former academy boss said. “They want to get in the team because we’ve been doing well. They all want to be part of it now because it’s going in the right direction. When you’re playing in something that’s successful, you don’t want to get out of the side.

“That is the sort of environment and culture that we wanted to create. That’s what we’re creating. We don’t want that to stop because that is the way to be successful and the way to get out of this division.”

Since Redfearn was appointed until the end of the season, the Whites on-pitch performances have improved beyond compare.

The utilisation of youth has brought a new look energy to the side, and for once their appears to be a positive future for the Yorkshire club. If Redfearn remains in charge next season it is hard to see how Leeds could not be considered one of the favourites for promotion, and on current form, they are one of the best teams in the division.

It certainly seems as if Redfearn is on the right path to creating the positive environment that he has spoken about.

However, it looks as if all his good work could have been wasted with the latest round of craziness to have occurred at Elland Road. Assistant coach Steve Thompson has been suspended for no apparent reason, and it appears as if Redfearn is being undermined as a way to force him to leave the club in the summer.

The latest round of events have done much to prove the craziness at Leeds is everlasting, and for all the good work that Redfearn has done, it now looks as the environment he has built will be destroyed as soon as it has been created.
