Thomas Christiansen says that he is thankful for the support of the Leeds United fans after his departure from Elland Road at the end of last week.

Thomas Christiansen has praised the Leeds United supporters after he was removed from his role at Elland Road last week.

After a poor run of form and Leeds now sitting in 10th place in the Championship table, the Yorkshire giants opted to sack the former Spain international and appoint Paul Heckingbottom from Barnsley.

Christiansen has waited to make a public response to the club's decision, but has chosen to credit the club's fans in a post on social media.

On Instagram, the 44-year-old said: "I did not want to leave without saying goodbye to you, the fans.

"You are the most precious treasure of this wonderful football club. Managers, players, directors and presidents may change, but you are the ones who remain, together and united.

"Your passion and requirement for success just symbolises your strength. Thank you for all your support."

Christiansen recorded 15 wins and six draws from his 35 games in charge.
