The 46-year-old has signed a two-year deal at the Yorkshire club to become the new head-coach.

He told a news conference at Elland Road: “It is a dream for everyone, for the fans, that we make it to the Premier League but we know that it will be very difficult.

“When we talked [to Cellino] last Sunday he told me my job is to make the squad better, play better on the field and be prepared to play in the Premier League but not that we are going in Premier League.

“For me I am concentrating on the extremely important first game and then the next game. I don’t look to 2016 – I live now in this moment.

“I am very motivated and excited about the new job at Leeds United. I like that the fans come in the stadium and have fun with us but you have to have order on the pitch and be aggressive and play like a team.

“I want to make some changes technically – I saw that here are many talented guys and I will push them to play.”
