At New York Stadium following the international break, Daniel Farke’s team takes on Rotherham.

Leeds United will face a Rotherham United side with a new manager in charge.

Following the international break after the Millers sacked manager Matt Taylor following Saturday’s 5-0 mauling at Watford.

After the international break, Leeds United will take on a Rotherham United team that has a new manager under head coach Matt Taylor. The Millers fired manager Matt Taylor after their crushing 5-0 loss to Watford on Saturday.

 

After replacing Paul Warne as team manager for 13 months, Taylor did what Warne was unable to do: he kept the Millers in the Championship the previous season.

 

It has been a terrifying start to the season, though, despite record summer spending and a number of key injuries, which culminated in the biggest loss of Taylor’s reign this past weekend.

 

It is understood that the dismal defeat to bottom-club Sheffield Wednesday a fortnight ago was a contributing factor in his exit while the club have not won away from home in over a year. Taylor leaves the Millers with two wins from their opening 16 games and four points from safety.

 

“It felt by myself and the board that we had to act now by making a managerial change in order to give ourselves the best possible chance of retaining our Sky Bet Championship status this season,” stated Tony Stewart, the chairman of Rotherham.

 

“It was not an easy decision to make, and we are grateful to Matt for his efforts over the past year. Naturally, everyone at Rotherham United sends him their very best wishes as he departs.”

 

The next game, on November 24, against Leeds, should see the appointment of a new manager as soon as possible.
