According to BBC Radio Leeds and presenter Adam Pope has today revealed that the club are set to announce Thomas Christiansen on an initial two-year-deal with the option of a third, rather than the 12 month rolling contract that had been mentioned yesterday.
New managing director Angus Kinnear was keen to stress that the club saw Thomas Christiansen as a long-term replacement for Garry Monk and was the man not only to lead the club to the Premier league but to keep us there too. Although the appointment was left field as it has been described the reasons that Christiansen was appointed have slowly filtered through over the last 24 hours. After meeting Andrea Radrizzani in Madrid the Italian owner was so impressed he immediately called off the search and got to the job of appointing the ex-Barcelona man.
Christiansen gave Radrizzani a run down of the full Leeds squad, including the strengths and weaknesses of the players and where the squad needs improving. He also gave in-depth analysis of some games last season and explained what he would do different. After speaking to an APOEL fan yesterday I learned some more about the new head-coach. http://peacockandsmiley.com/4235/apoel-fan-view-on-thomas-christiansen-an-inside-view-of-the-new-head-coach/.
