Christiansen identifies veteran striker as Leeds target, 24 goals last season

New Leeds United head coach Thomas Christiansen has ruled out bringing in players from his previous club APOEL, at present. "I am very excited and I believe that we can do good things here".

Christiansen impressed the club's owner Andrea Radrizzani and the director of football Victor Orta with a presentation during his interview last week in Madrid.

The Whites have appointed the 44-year-old as Garry Monk's successor at Elland Road, with the Championship club's next focus on bringing new players to Yorkshire.

Mr Cundy said: "I absolutely understand the frustration of why figures haven't been released earlier". A £5 million ($8.79m) fund has been set up for emergency supplies, food and clothing.


Christiansen admitted that working in England with United represents a dream come true and has promised a flexible approach in terms of his tactics in his first campaign in English football.

The former Spain worldwide was somewhat of a surprise appointment made by United late last week as they announced him as the successor to Garry Monk - who has recently taken up a managerial position at fellow Championship outfit Middlesbrough.

"I believe in my possibilities and that is why I am here". This is why Leeds also believe in my abilities and we all want the same, to arrive in the best place at the end of the season. "Since I was a boy I've followed the English league and know how they play and how they have advanced".

"Last year, we finished seventh, promotion should at least be a target".

"I'm looking forward to seeing what he can offer in pre-season and we go from there".

"I am at a big club with ambition".
