Didi Hamann rips into Leeds on Twitter during Blackburn defeat

The former Premier League midfielder remembers playing a very different Leeds...

Dietmar Hamann took to Twitter to compare Leeds United's travails with the club he used to face when he was a Premier League midfielder with Liverpool.

Indeed, as Leeds fell 2-0 down to Blackburn Rovers within six minutes at Elland Road on Thursday night, the German discussed the Yorkshire side on social media.

The problem with being televised live on Sky Sports is that a much wider audience can watch you fall. That's exactly what happened to the Whites on Thursday and Hamann said it 'pains' him to see Elland Road half empty - with those fans who made the journey not exactly watching any good football.

The German also couldn't resist a joke about new head coach Steve Evans' job security.

Asked about the Scot, Hamann quipped that he might not be Leeds coach beyond half-time.

However, the former Liverpool midfielder did give a fair and more positive assessment of the Yorkshire club when asked a more serious question by a fan.

Indeed, Hamann says he always thought of Leeds as a good club - just one in turmoil at the moment.
