Greg Abbott has a message for Leeds fans

Leeds United East Stand

Greg Abbott says that Leeds United supporters should look beyond the defeat to Rotherham United in the Championship at the weekend.

Greg Abbott has suggested on TV Yorkshire that Leeds United fans should be worried about the direction the club are headed.

The former Leeds coach made the comments following the West Yorkshire outfit’s defeat to Rotherham United away from home at the weekend.

The Whites suffered a 2-1 loss to Rotherham at the AESSEAL New York Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Abbott was disappointed with Leeds’s defeat, but he highlighted more pressing concerns about the future of the club.

“That, for me, would be the worrying thing going on at Leeds United at the minute, that the fans beyond the result today should be looking at and thinking, ‘Where are we going next year?’ because there are too many fans turning up here week in week out away from home, supporting this fantastic football club and getting short-changed,” he said on TV Yorkshire while discussing the future of head coach Steve Evans and the club in general. “Not right.”

Leeds’s season is virtually over, as it is clear that they will not get relegated and are likely to finish in the bottom half of the Championship table.

The West Yorkshire outfit should still try to win as many games as possible between now and the end of the season, but they should start planning for the 2016-17 campaign.

Steve Evans’s side will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road in the Championship.
