Leeds United appoint Darko Milanic as new head coach

Darko Milanic is appointed as the new head coach of Leeds United on a two-year deal.

Leeds United have confirmed the appointment of Darko Milanic as their new head coach.

The Slovenian had been heavily linked to the position and he has signed a two-year deal with the club.

He will be joined at the Whites by Novica Nikcevic, who was his assistant at Sturm Graz.

"Yes, we agreed a two-year deal," Leeds owner Massimo Cellino told Sky Sports News. "He's just arrived today. We've been waiting for him about 15 days.

"I don't know [why I've chosen him]. The coaches are like watermelons. You find out about them when you open them.

"His particular qualities? He's good looking, what can I tell you?"

Milanic was in charge of Graz for a season, following five years at previous club Maribor.

Maribor's head coach Darko Milanic looks on prior to the start of the UEFA Europa League football match NK Maribor vs. S.S. Lazio in Maribor, on December 6, 2012
