Leroy Rosenior reiterates stance on Leeds: 'It's no way to run a football club'

The BBC pundit is no less baffled by the suspension of Leeds assistant Steve Thompson.

Leroy Rosenior has reiterated his stance on Leeds United, stating 'it's no way to run a football club,' according to the BBC's Football League Show.

Rosenior was speaking after Leeds' 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon, the club's third loss since assistant manager Steve Thompson was suspended.

He believes the decision has affected boss Neil Redfearn, as well as the club's players, and he simply can't see any logic behind the goings on at Elland Road.

And the Football League Show pundit said: "It’s affected the manager. It destabilises the players, as I said, when you get these decisions from out of nowhere.

"They were playing well, they were picking up points regularly. The suspension of Steve Thompson came out of absolutely nowhere. It’s no way to run a football club."

A week ago, Rosenior slammed the decision to suspend Thompson and, now that Leeds have lost three on the bounce since his departure, the BBC pundit has aptly echoed what the fans are thinking when asked for his comments on the Yorkshire side's troubles.

The important thing for Leeds, of course, is that they will remain a Championship club next season, with Redfearn (largely due to his side's form while Thompson was his assistant) guiding the Elland Road outfit to safety.

What will greet them in the summer is far less certain, of course. Who will stay? Who will go? And what, in general, will happen at Leeds?
