Watch: Leeds players rejoice as coach poleaxes himself in front of them

It happens to the best of us as they say…

Despite recent losses to Huddersfield and Cardiff, the Leeds United players seem like a cheerful bunch under head coach Garry Monk.

They were even happier yesterday as they saw one of their coaches come a cropper while trying to explain in running drill to them.

The coach in question is the club’s Head of Physical Performance Sean Rush and he was showing the players a figure of eight run he wanted them to do. However, just as he rounded the final cone he hit the deck like a sack of spuds – much to the delight of the watching first team squad.

All the best odds on Championship football are on

At least Rush saw the funny side and felt he’d built up to much speed into the turn!

Leeds celebrate Valentine’s Day by taking on Bristol City at Elland Road tonight and they’ll need a win to solidify their Play-Off hopes.
