McDermott still Leeds United manager?

Confusion continues to surround Leeds United after a  statement was released by the club claiming Brian McDermott was still manager. The former Reading boss was reportedly sacked on Friday evening and was not present as the Whites chalked up a 5-1 victory over Huddersfield at Elland Road. But, around half-an-hour after the victory, the Yorkshire club released a statement on the offical club website which said the 52-year-old had not been sacked. "The club would like to make it clear that Brian McDermott remains our first team manager," a statement said. "He has not been dismissed from his post as has been suggested and we look forward to him continuing in his role with us in taking Leeds United forwards."


  1. Lufc r absalute shower off shite messing him about

  2. Lufc is the football club and the fans, the people who have messed him about are those who are his pay masters, GFH, and have been part of the club for less than a year. How dare you say the football club that's been going all these years since 1911 is responsible. Lets face it BMcD is a good guy true and so may be the players but they are all payed to do a job and if you or I were as bad in our jobs as they have been, you and I would have been sacked long before. Being a good guy has nothing to do with what you are paid to do so just stop feeling like a girly man about the situation, grow a pair, accept that in this day and age football is a business and hope the future is bright, stop being a chuffing pessimist!

  3. The fans are the backbone of this massive football club. Who do these jokers think they are messing with when causing agro at Leeds United? McDermott should be given more support and more respect by whoever has the club.
    We are Leeds
