Neil Redfearn has been speaking to the Telegraph recently and has been reflecting on his career and time as a coach at Leeds.
Neil’s a real favourite and certainly did what he could in challenging circumstances to say the least as Massimo Cellino did his very best to send us all over the edge.
He left in pretty chaotic circumstances, though, which was obviously a massive shame but he has now decided to have his say on it all:
“I was coaching there for eight years and, in the time I was there, you saw a lot of quality players come through and I was very proud of that.
“When I was offered the manager’s job, we were nearly in the bottom three, we got out of trouble, we had a really good run. It was a tempestuous time for the club, there was a lot going on behind the scenes, but that doesn’t sour my experience of Leeds.”
Plenty of young players progressed into the first team and some have gone on to the Premier League thanks to Redfearn’s time as a coach.
Clearly, he knows how to get the best out of players and he now currently manages the Liverpool Ladies side where he’s surely going to do a good job.
In the future, meanwhile, he’d surely be welcomed back at the club by our fans.
