Christiansen said: "It (APOEL) is a very hard club and if you see the situation during the last four or five years - where they sacked two or three coaches each year - I started and finished".

Christiansen is a rather inexperienced manager, with his only previous posts having been at AEK Larnaca and APOEL, but the 44-year-old is relishing the task that awaits him at Elland Road. That's why I'm here and I learned a lot at APOEL, where they sacked two or three coaches each season in the last four or five years.

Derbyshire has spent most of his career in English football, however he spent last season at APOEL's fierce rivals AC Omonia Nicosia where he was the leading scorer in the Cypriot First Division, scoring 24 goals in 33 league appearances for the club.

"I believe in my possibilities, this is why I'm here and why Leeds believe in me".

But it very well may, with polls showing a tossup in Georgia's 6th Congressional District, where Republicans usually coast. At least one local Republican official interpreted last week's shooting as a potential positive for Handel's candidacy.

"There were many things that I didn't understand, that he showed us, normal things for me now to understand, but in that moment I couldn't see it because he was a genius - on the pitch, coaching. I believe with good work we can achieve that". I know how they play and how they advance.

The former Spain worldwide was the surprise choice as new head coach at Elland Road after impressing Leeds owner Andrea Radrizziani in his interview.

"This is something we're going to talk about internally, " Christiansen added.

The new head coach will be given a "specific budget" for summer signings, Orta said, while Christiansen confirmed he had no plans at this stage to bring in new players from his former club and was happy with the squad he had inherited. "It's always been a dream for me. It's been a big target and now I have this big opportunity to come to Leeds". "A player who want to play in Leeds, not just for money, not just to play in England". This is why I'm here and Leeds also believe in my abilities and we all want the same.
