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."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
