Leeds boss Christiansen took Lasogga off in Millwall loss because “he was finished”

Leeds United suffered a last-gasp 4-3 defeat in a thrilling Championship encounter against Millwall at Elland Road on Saturday, slipping down to 10th in the standings as a result.

The Whites fell behind to an Aiden O’Brien goal before captain Liam Cooper saw red eight minutes before the break for a high challenge on Lions midfielder George Saville.

The hosts found themselves 2-0 down at the break after Lee Gregory’s goal, but the 10 men then produced an unlikely comeback with three goals in 17 minutes seeing them lead.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga scored the first and the third, but he was taken off in the 83rd minute with Thomas Christiansen’s men still in the lead.

However, late goals from Tom Elliott and Jed Wallace snatched the points for the visitors, and Christiansen was questioned on the decision to take the Hamburg loanee off following the final whistle.

According to Leeds Live, the 44-year-old summed it up in three words when he said: “He was finished”.
