“Last year we finished seventh. At least the promotion should be there and of course we hope to do better,” the former Spain international, who replaced Garry Monk last week, said at a news conference yesterday.

“I’m very excited and believe we can do good things here. This is why I’m here and Leeds also believe in my abilities and we all want the same,” the 44-year-old told media, referring to his meeting last week with owner Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta.
