Redfearn excited for Leeds United's future

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes supporters are firmly behind his policy of bringing through youngsters at Elland Road.

Neil Redfearn says he is delighted fans are backing the team on the pitch regardless of results, and are buying into what he is trying to achieve.

Redfearn believes that the supporters are fully behind his current ethos of bringing through the club's youngsters and that the Whites are in a strong position because of it.

The 49-year-old manager says that Leeds have everything in place to be successful in the next few years and he is already looking forward to the future.

The problem for Leeds is that this harmony between supporters and players is threatening to be disrupted by boardroom unrest.

The Whites have had to deal with a lot of problems at boardroom level this season and it has threatened to destabilise their campaign, which has otherwise been an encouraging one. The most recent example was the suspension of assistant boss Steve Thompson, while Neil Redfearn is the third head coach this season.

Leeds have managed to make Lewis Cook, Sam Byram, Charlie Taylor and Alex Mowatt - all products of the club's academy system - into first-team stars and the hope is that they can continue to progress at Elland Road in the future.

If they can the Whites will be in a good position to mount a promotion push next term and their 2015 so far has proven just how much of a threat they can be at Championship level.
