Neil Redfearn hails Leeds United fans as 'the best' in the country

Neil Redfearn's latest comments prove that Leeds United will always have unwavering support regardless of their off-pitch issues.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn did not get the result he wanted when his side took on Blackburn Rovers this weekend, but he did praise the fans for their continual support following their 3-0 defeat.

In comments published by Leeds’ official Twitter account, the Whites boss reflected on a day that saw Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight remembered by the Elland Road faithful on the 15th anniversary of their deaths.

Thanking “the best supporters in the land” Redfearn went on to say, “It was really touching today; the lads know the supporters are behind them.”

Leeds had been on their latest undefeated run prior to kick-off, but the match did not go according to plan, with the returning Rudy Austin sent off six minutes before half-time and three second-half goals giving Gary Bowyer’s side a comfortable victory.

It is a match, and a week, Redfearn will no doubt want to put behind him following the suspension of his assistant Steve Thompson.

But the one thing Leeds will always have is there support, and that was evident once more on a weekend when nothing went their way.
