Thomas Christiansen 'likes' Leeds United-related tweet

APOEL's Spanish head coach Thomas Christiansen looks on prior to the Europa League group B football match beetween Young Boys and APOEL at the Stade de Suisse in Bern on October 20, 2016.

Thomas Christiansen is keeping an eye on Leeds United at the moment, it seems.

Marcelo Bielsa is certainly living up to his billing as Leeds United boss.

The Whites thumped Derby County 4-1 at the iPro Stadium on Saturday evening to maintain their 100% record in the Championship, after beating Stoke City 3-1 last weekend.

In doing so, Bielsa's side moved second in the table, one point adrift of Middlesbrough who have played one extra match.

But Leeds fans won't be getting too carried away just yet, for things were similarly promising under Thomas Christiansen this time last year.


United were unbeaten for the first seven games of the 2017-18 campaign - and had kept six clean sheets in a row during that period - but the Elland Road club wound up finishing 13th in the table, with Paul Heckingbottom replacing Christiansen in February.

But Christiansen remains a popular figure among many Leeds fans, and the man himself has 'liked' a post about him, in which the Argentine coach is also described as "different gravy".

Christiansen will be delighted to see Leeds doing so well for now, but he might feel a little sheepish about Mateusz Klich's form.

The Poland international has opened the scoring in both of the Whites' Championship games this season.

He is clearly a big player under Bielsa, and yet he could barely manage a game under Christiansen and only started once in the Championship prior to leaving on loan for Utrecht in January, though the Denmark-born Spaniard will surely look at the bigger picture and cheer on his old side, even if he might've got it wrong with Klich.
