Neil Redfearn: Was Leeds caretaker before Brian McDermott was appointed

Redfearn, who took charge of the first team for the 2-1 loss at Charlton following the sacking of Neil Warnock, has been chiefly employed as the club's lead Under-21/pro-development coach.

The 47-year-old's first-team role will see him work alongside McDermott's assistant Nigel Gibbs.

"I want Nigel and Neil to be together with myself," McDermott told the Leeds official website.

"(Under-18's coach) Richard Naylor and Leigh Bromby are here at the training ground as well and they are both good people. I hadn't met Richard before, but he is a good man.

"I'm really pleased with the whole environment to be honest. Everyone wants to go in the same direction and that's important. What I won't be involved in is a blame culture, moaning, or gossiping. I have no interest.

"I won't do anything to the detriment of the football club."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
