Gracia Pens Open Letter To Leeds Fans After Dismissal

Javi Gracia has broken his silence after his dismissal by Leeds United following a woeful run of seven games without a win.

The Spaniard thanked the club for the opportunity to take charge of the reins and attempted to convince them of the good work in an open letter addressed to Leeds fans on Wednesday.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity and proud of the team, both players and coaching staff," wrote Gracia after a short stint at Elland Road. 

"That's how I would like to summarise my time at Leeds United. 

"I would have preferred a different moment, but the circumstances have changed.

"We arrived on a short three-month contract. And we did it because we believed in this team. 

"We considered our chances and had confidence. And we know it is possible. 

"We are not talking about miracles, but the efficient result of a well-done work and a process of improvement."

Continuing, he added: "The coaching staff and I took over the team in 19th position, with a run of ten games without a win. 

"Today, after 11 games played and four games left in the league, the team is out of the relegation zone and with a good chance of achieving the objective.

"It has been a very tense period for many reasons. A busy schedule, injuries and a young but skilled team. 

"However, we managed to position ourselves better than our rivals and this is shown by the results.

"Compared to our direct rivals and since we were hired, we are the team with the most points - 11 in total - compared to our main competitors. 

"I am confident that the team will achieve its objective. It is a committed squad full of quality."
