Leeds United boss offers sketchy response when pressed on player’s future



Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s loan move at Leeds United could be approaching a premature end, with boss Thomas Christiansen revealing to Leeds Live that he was unsure whether the player had a future at Elland Road.

The 20-year-old joined the Whites on a season-long loan deal in the summer, but has so far made just a single league appearance under the Danish boss.

Parent club United are reportedly unhappy with the player’s lack of game time in West Yorkshire, and are considering recalling the player this month, with Derby and Reading reportedly interested in a move for the promising young defender.

When pressed on the player’s future, Christiansen admitted that he was unsure what would happen.

“I don’t know right now,” he told Leeds Live. “He is not in the list because two days ago he got a kick and twisted his ankle and will be out.”

The Verdict

Borthwick-Jackson’s time at Elland Road appears to have been a complete waste of time, and United chiefs will be extremely disappointed in the way the player has been utilised by Christiansen and Leeds.

The player looked extremely promising when breaking into the first-team at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal, and can return to form with another second tier side.

United must ensure the player finds a club where he is considered the first choice left back.
