Former Leeds United midfielder Mike Grella shows support for Neil Redfearn on Twitter

Former Leeds United midfielder Mike Grella thinks highly of head coach Neil Redfearn.

Former Leeds United midfielder Mike Grella clearly holds current boss Neil Redfearn in high regard.

The 28-year-old responded to a supporter on Twitter over the weekend, who asked him what he thought of the current head coach.

He was unequivocal in his reply, describing Redfearn as an absolute legend.


Grella is currently playing for Major League Soccer side New York Red Bulls, where he has scored twice in the opening four games of the season.

He played for Leeds between 2008 and 2011, departing the club for Brentford on a free transfer.

Current head coach Neil Redfearn is facing an uncertain future at the club. With just one game left of the season, he is still in the dark as to whether his contract will be renewed.

Redfearn was working in the club's academy during Grella's time at Leeds, and the general feeling among the fan base is nobody knows the club better than he does, and he deserves time to continue his management of the first team.

The Sun claimed last week club owner Massimo Cellino is considering replacing Redfearn with former Leeds striker and current Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
