New Leeds boss Darko Milanic has outlined his plans for Leeds United at an Elland Road press conference this morning.

Milanic was confirmed as the first foreign boss in United’s 95-year history on Tuesday night, hours after handling a training session at Thorp Arch.

The 46-year-old Slovenian flew into England on Monday evening having negotiated his release from Austrian side Sturm Graz and he will take charge of Leeds for the first time away to Brentford on Saturday.

Milanic, the former Maribor coach, terminated his deal at Graz after less than year in the job, activating a clause allowing him to buy his way out of the contract.

That agreement is understood to have cost between £200,000 and £300,000.
