Caleb Ekuban's Leeds United sack manager

Ghana striker Caleb Ekuban's Leeds United side have sacked their head coach, Thomas Christiansen, following a dismal seven-match winless run, with the Championship club yet to win in 2018.

Leeds were hammered 4-1 at home to Cardiff City on Saturday, two weeks after losing to Millwall at Elland Road and almost a month on from their FA Cup exit at the hands of Newport County. The club are 10th in the league, with their last victory in all competitions on Boxing Day, a 2-1 win at Burton Albion.

The 44-year-old Dane was appointed on a two-year contract in June but after a promising start in which Leeds were top of the table in September, they have since fallen away from the top-six reckoning, losing five of their last seven matches.

Christiansen’s assistants, Julio Bañuelos and Paul Butler, have also left Leeds, along with the fitness coach, Ivan Torres.
