Leeds star Billy Sharp congratulated Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on his recent success with Burton Albion.

Leeds United striker Billy Sharp reached out to congratulate one of the club's former heroes on his recent managerial success.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at the weekend helped Burton Albion secure automatic promotion from League Two at his first attempt.

The Dutchman had posted a light-hearted comment while he watched Bayern Munich destroy FC Porto 6-1 in the Champions League.

Leeds striker Billy Sharp took the opportunity to respond to the club's former hero, complementing his achievement.

Hasselbaink replied to the current Leeds star, who missed a penalty in the recent loss to Charlton.

After beginning his managerial career in Belgium with Royal Antwerp last season, Hasselbaink is off to a dream start at Burton.

If the unthinkable happened at Leeds and Neil Redfearn's contract is now renewed at Leeds by Massimo Cellino, it would be no surprise to see the Dutchman linked with taking over, even he may be considered crazy to risk his own rising post-playing career stalling under the Italian's hire-and-fire regime.
