Massimo Cellino, Leeds United’s owner, has heralded the arrival of Serbian coach Darko Milanic by declaring that he “hopes” the club are on the cusp of big things in the near future, as reported by BBC Radio Leeds.
The Italian corn magnate terminated the deal of Dave Hockaday several weeks ago, having only appointed him as head coach during the summer months.
He has since seen Neil Redfearn keep the team undefeated over four games, winning three of them, and the atmosphere around the club has improved significantly in that spell.
Redfearn has not, however, been offered the job, and it now seems as though it will be going to former Maribor manager Milanic.
The former Slovenian treble winner is set to sign a two year contract with the Yorkshire club tomorrow.
With the appointment on the cusp of occurring, Cellino was asked whether he thought that Leeds were going to see big things in their future.
Cellino replied simply, stating only: “I hope so”.
