Leeds United Sack Thomas Christiansen: 3 Possible Destinations For The Dane To Consider

Leeds United have sacked their head coach Thomas Christiansen after a dismal run, which has seen them fall off the pace in the race to secure a playoff spot at the end of the season. The Peacocks are in a seven-match winless run and are yet to taste victory in 2018. Leeds were thumped 4-1 at home to Cardiff City on Saturday, two weeks after tasting defeat at the hands of Millwall at Elland Road and almost a month on from their disappointing FA Cup exit when Newport County knocked them out of England’s most premier cup competition. The West Yorkshire outfit are occupying the 10th spot in the league table, with their last victory in all competitions coming on Boxing Day last year, a 2-1 triumph at Burton Albion.

Christiansen was appointed as the Leeds United manager last summer on a two-year deal. They made a great start under the 44-year-old Dane and found themselves at the top of the Championship table two months into the new campaign. However, the Peacocks have since fallen off the pace, so much so, that they are almost out of the running to secure a top 6 finish at the end of the season. With the Danish manager out of work at the moment, let’s take a look at three potential destinations for him to consider in the near future.

Birmingham City

The West Midlands club have struggled in the Skybet Championship this season and are in real danger of being relegated to League One at the end of the current campaign. They are in dire need of results at the moment with their manager Steve Cotterill living on borrowed time. A potential appointment of Christiansen in the near future might be a perfect fit for Birmingham City as they try to save themselves this term in their quest to make a promotion push in the next campaign.

Sheffield Wednesday

The Owls are currently in 17th place in the Skybet Championship standings with a tally of 33 points after 30 league matches. They are still not out of relegation danger and finds themselves just six points above the drop zone going into the final stretch of the season. The club has recently appointed Jos Luhukay as their new boss but a potential move for Christiansen in the summer might give them renewed optimism ahead of the new campaign.

Bolton Wanderers

The Trotters are currently flirting with disaster and are just two points above the relegation zone. Phil Parkinson’s side faces the possibility of suffering the agony of relegation to League One in the coming months so a change of manager might be their last hope to salvage their season. Christiansen already knows the league well and could be the perfect fit for Bolton going into the future.
