Leeds United have terminated the contract of manager David Hockaday.


Having been appointed back in June as a replacement for Brian McDermott, Hockaday suffered a poor start to the season losing  three of four league games leaving the club languishing in 21st place.

Owner Massimo Cellino told LUFC: “I’d like to thank David for his efforts over the last two and a half months

but the results since the start of the season have meant we needed to act and make this decision.

After the defeat at Bradford I realised that my decision to keep David at the club following the defeat at Watford was wrong.”

First team coach Neil Redfearn will now take charge on a temporary basis.
