DUNDEE UNITED today appointed the former Hearts boss Csaba Laszlo as their new manager.
And Laszlo made his immediate objectives very clear – he wants to ensure that Dundee United are promoted this season.
“It is a privilege to become Dundee United manager,” said the 53 year old who has signed on at Tannadice until May 2019.
“This is a fantastic club and I will work hard to make sure they return to the Ladbrokes Premiership.
“I look forward to meeting the players. There is a good squad and good staff here and we want to win the Ladbrokes Championship.”
Dundee United owner Stephen Thompson was delighted to get his man after missing out on Alan Stubbs, who decided against taking on the role.
“After meeting Csaba, seeing his enthusiasm for the job and his understanding of what is required by Dundee United, he emerged as the outstanding candidate,” Thompson said.
“Csaba‘s CV is very impressive and his enthusiasm very infectious but after we met, the board spoke to many people who had worked with him in football and I believe we have secured a fantastic coach, man-manager and a highly experienced tactician.
“I am delighted to welcome him as the new Dundee United manager.”
Laszlo managed Hearts between 2008-2010 and secured third spot and a European return for the Jambos.
