Sky Bet Championship: Leeds United fire head coach Darko Milanic

Leeds United have parted company with head coach Darko Milanic a matter of weeks after he took over at Elland Road.

Milanic had only been in charge for six games but failed to win any of those, Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Wolves sealing his fate.

Owner Massimo Cellino has told Sky Sports News HQ that he will appoint Neil Redfearn as head coach on a permanent basis.

Redfearn, who will take training on Monday, secured 10 points from 12 while in caretaker control earlier this season after the dismissal of Dave Hockaday - also after just six games.

Milanic had insisted he could turn things around, saying at his post-match press conference: "I am disappointed because we deserve some more points.

"This is not a good position for me and the team, but I still see good things that we make. I believe it (he can get it right).

"My job is to do this better, to improve. I am sure this one second half is not the work of one month. I work with my team a lot and it's a young team without a lot of experience.

"We played a good first half, had chances, we had one goal. Then we began to play backwards."

But just moments later, Cellino asked director of football Nicola Salerno to tell the Slovenian that his brief stay in Yorkshire was over.

"I want to apologise to the supporters, they deserve better results," Cellino said via the club's Twitter account after ending Milanic's reign just 32 days in.
