LUFC McDermott encouraged by club owners
Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says he has had a positive and encouraging meeting with the clubs owners GFH Capital, as he sets out his plans for next season.
McDermott, who took over the Elland Road hot seat in April, is aiming to return Leeds to the top flight next season for the first time in ten years and he was happy with how things went with the owners. Speaking on the official website , McDermott said, 'We've had a good meeting over two days. We spoke about a number of things to progress the club, including player acquisitions, philosophies, how I see things, and upgrading the training ground.
"We discussed an open working relationship and the importance of everyone pulling in the same direction, and they were very, very supportive. I have to say, it was very positive and very encouraging.'
This summer is the first real test of the new owners, who took over the club in December. They have already sold of a stake in the club. IIB (International Investment Bank) have bought a 10% stake in the club and it has been revealed this week that an unnamed member of the Leeds United board has bought a further 3.33% stake.
