LEEDS UNITED HAVE announced the sacking of manager Darko Milanic following today’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves.

Milanic is the third Leeds manager to be sacked by owner Massimo Cellino in the last five months and leaves his post after just 32 days in charge.

Today’s defeat leaves Leeds sitting 18th in the league, without a win in their last six league games.

Cellino said this evening, “I want to apologise to the supporters, they deserve better results.”

Neil Redfearn will take charge of training on Monday having done so after the sacking of previous manager David Hockaday.

The news came just an hour after the official Leeds United Twitter account had tweeted quotes from Milanic about how he was confident of turning things around.

Fair or unfair to say this is the worst miss of Messi’s career?

As it happened: Real Madrid vs Barcelona, El Clasico
