Whites boss Thomas Christiansen sat down for his post-match press conference, in the aftermath of his side's bitterly disappointing 3-1 defeat to Brentford, and responded to a question from reporters asking him if he and his team under-estimated the Bees, as quoted by LUTV.
Leeds now find themselves sitting in 10th position in the Championship table, 12 points adrift of league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers, after a horrendous run that has seen them lose six out of their last seven league outings.
Christiansen now faces the tough task of trying to galvanise his troops during the two-week international break, and he finds himself under extreme pressure, following his side's woeful run of form.
The 44-year-old spoke to reporters after the west Yorkshire outfit's defeat at Griffin Park, and fiercely refuted the fact that he underestimated Brentford before yesterday's defeat, as quoted by LUTV:
"That's a good question. I never under-estimate anyone. If I did that, it would be very poor from my side. I always explain to my players their strengths and weaknesses. How can you under-estimate a team coming from five games without losing. Do you think I under-estimated them?"
Next up on the horizon for Leeds is a huge game against Middlesbrough on November 19th.
Garry Monk will return to Elland Road following his acrimonious departure from the club in the summer, and he will be just as desperate as Christiansen and Leeds for all three points.
