Barton reacts to Leeds situation on Twitter, Richard Keys mocks club chairman

Burnley’s Joey Barton, Derby County’s Stephen Warnock, Michael Bridges and Richard Keys react to the dismissal of Uwe Rosler as Leeds United head coach.

Burnley midfielder Joey Barton has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the dismissal of Uwe Rosler as the Leeds United head coach.

Rosler has been sacked as the Leeds boss after just 12 games in charge, having been appointed in his role at the end of last season.

The 46-year-old took charge of the West Yorkshire outfit In May, but a poor run of results this season seems to convinced club chairman Massimo Cellino that the German is not the right man for the job.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Barton, who joined Burnley on a free transfer in the summer transfer window after leaving Queens Park Rangers at the end of last season, has taken to Twitter to give his take on the situation at Leeds.

Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has also expressed his shock at Cellino’s decision and has posted the following message on Twitter:

Former Leeds midfielder Stephen Warnock, now on the books of Championship rivals Derby County, has also reacted to the news on Twitter, and so has ex-Leeds attacker Michael Bridges.

Leeds are 18th in the Championship table at the moment with 11 points from as many matches, just three points above the relegation zone.
