London (AFP) – Former Spanish international Thomas Christiansen is the new manager of fallen English football giants Leeds United, the second-tier club announced on Thursday.

The 44-year-old - born in Denmark but who qualified to play for Spain through his Spanish mother - replaces Garry Monk, who shocked the club by rejecting a new contract last month.
