Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills suggested the club's fans are a constant at an uncertain time.

Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills told talkSPORT that it doesn’t matter what division his old club are in, their support base will never fade away.

Leeds fans have grown used to adversity in the recent past, but Mills has paid tribute to the club’s supporters, one of the most passionate and loyal sets of fans in the Football League.

“For me it’s still one of the biggest clubs outside of the Premier League. You’d still get 30,000 people no bother, whatever division they are in,” said Mills.

There are a number of questions currently hanging over the head of the club and Leeds fans deserve answers.

The main one is the future of the managerial position, with it becoming increasingly unlikely that Neil Redfearn will keep his job for next season.

The Daily Mirror recently ran a report, which included quotes from owner and chairman Massimo Cellino where the Italian branded Redfearn ‘weak’ which suggested that he doesn’t see the former academy chief as the ideal person to lead the team next year.

However, plenty of fans would suggest otherwise and it’s important the club have the right man in charge, who can bridge that gap between the team and the fans.

Whoever is in charge at the start of the next campaign, the fans will turn out in tens of thousands to support the team and hopefully the club can get back into the Premier League where they belong as quickly as possible.
