Massimo Cellino has confirmed that he held meetings with former Leeds United manager Simon Grayson, who famously led the club to promotion from League One, before being sacked by former chairman Ken Bates, as reported by Simon Austin, who has written for the likes of The Sun.
He met with both Grayson and his agent, with Cellino reportedly joking that he was unsure as to which was the manager and which his representative, before bemoaning the state of agents in England, which is unlike what he knew in Italy.
This does, however, confirm that Cellino held meetings over the job with the club hero.
He also clarified that current Sturm Graz manager Darko Milanic is negotiating his release from his contract with the club, having agreed terms and held meetings with Cellino.
Milanic formerly won a treble while managing Maribor in the Slovenian league.
