Leeds manager Neil Warnock says he "does not expect to be in charge" for the Championship club's next match.

The Whites lost 2-1 to Derby on Monday, leaving 12th-placed Leeds well adrift of the play-offs and just five points clear of the relegation zone.

United, who have lost three successive matches, visit Charlton on Saturday.

Warnock, 64, has previously admitted he would leave the West Yorkshire club if they failed to win promotion to the Premier League.

The former Sheffield United and QPR manager also indicated he could leave before his contract expires in the summer, once it was mathematically impossible for the Whites to clinch a return to the top-flight for the first time since 2004.

Did he jump or was he pushed? If he resigned, fair play to him; at least he stood by his promise. There seems to be a mixed reaction from the Leeds fans but to be honest, he wasnt brought in to have them playing 'Barca footy', he was there to get them promoted like QPR and in Leeds case, he didnt really get the players. Still, means we'll probab;y see him as a pundit again so wait for the fireworks.

I'm surprised he didn't leave earlier as he was clashing with the board over withdrawn promises of a big transfer kitty last year. His missus will get fed up with him being home all day soon and he will be looking to get back into management. :lol:

He has said for a while he would leave if they didn't get in to the play off's, thought he would have gone sooner.

He's got so much passion (for lack of a better word) for what he does, he's going to be like a guy who's worked his entire life and suddenly retired...he's going to go crazy with nothing at all to do. I'll bet he gets back into management of some form within the year.

Guys like him will always find something to put their 'passion' into whether it be with professional clubs or even his own kids coaching or management business.
It will be really interesting to see what the next big move will be for him.
