Leeds fans react as O’Kane likens Christiansen to Eddie Howe

Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s Championship clash against Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday, Leeds United midfielder Eunan O’Kane has likened the under-fire Thomas Christiansen to Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, and Whites fans have been quick to have their say on his comments.

Christiansen is starting to come under a bit of pressure from the supporters after the Yorkshire outfit lost six of their last eight league games – including the 2-1 defeat against Derby County at Elland Road on Tuesday – but O’Kane says his manager is as close to Howe as they come having worked with the Cherries chief during a spell on the south coast previously.

Leeds supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on their midfielder’s quotes, and while one person said they were “totally laughable”, another said it’s “not really a compliment”.
