CELLINO MAKES PATIENCE PROMISE
LAST season was a decidedly ugly one at Leeds United, but chairman Massimo Cellino insists boss Uwe Rosler is bringing the “beautiful” back to Elland Road.
Since Cellino’s takeover in April 2014, managers Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic and Neil Redfearn have been and gone.
Considering that kneejerk record, Rosler – who had presided over two wins, five draws and two defeats in the Championship before the weekend – can ill afford to sit comfortably.
However Cellino insists that, on this occasion, he’s willing to give Rosler time to shape his squad after backing his new man to get the job done.
“He’s doing a beautiful job. It’s a team that’s going to fly,” Cellino said.
“We are starting to build a team and a new mentality. We know that when you want to build something, you need to do the foundations and that takes more time.
“If we are rash with the foundations, we risk breaking the building like we have done before. If we don’t do the same with the team and the players, we risk wasting time like in the past years.”
