Leeds United's Charlie Taylor says keeping Neil Redfearn is a 'no-brainer'

One of Leeds United's goal-scorers on Saturday has been speaking about the club's manager.

Leeds United player Charlie Taylor has been speaking to BBC Radio Leeds following his side’s 2-1 victory against Sheffield Wednesday.

The 21-year-old scored his second goal of the season on Saturday, with the resurgent Steve Morison ultimately netting the winner.

Taylor was clearly happy with his efforts in what has been an impressive breakout season for the player, who had to wait patiently for his chances. But it was his comments on Leeds boss Neil Redfearn that really stood out.

Leeds went into Saturday’s match without a win in their previous six matches, while the situation at the club means the manager’s future has been speculated about by fans and pundits alike. But Taylor made it clear what he thought of his gaffer; a feeling he said was echoed by the whole squad.

When asked if he wanted Redfearn to remain at Leeds for the long haul, Taylor said, “Oh year, 100 per cent I don’t think there’s any player at the club that doesn’t want him to stay.

“Everyone is right behind him and it’s a no-brainer for me really.”

Given how well Redfearn has performed since he became the permanent manager at Elland Road it would surely be a no-brainer for many.
