CELLINO MAKES PA­TIENCE PROM­ISE

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

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.”
