'I did everything right' - Leeds job still at front of Milanic's mind

Former Leeds United head coach Darko Milanic is still commenting on his failed spell at the club.

Former Leeds United head coach Darko Milanic says he doesn’t regret anything from his time at the club.

Milanic was in charge of the side for six games before he was sacked by owner Massimo Cellino, as he failed to register a single victory in those six encounters.

However, he has defended himself against criticism of his brief tenure.

“So far everything is going according to the desired plan and there’s not a single regret,” he told Primorske Novice.

“Although my current status is something completely new for me, one should be aware that for a coach it is completely normal.”

“I myself made certain that I did everything right.”

Some supporters feel that Neil Redfearn’s appointment after Milanic was sacked is the decision that Cellino should have made in the first place, before he appointed the Slovenian.

Leeds won last weekend to end a long run of matches without a victory and Redfearn finally seems to have the side moving in the right direction.

It is a little bizarre as to why Milanic struggled in the Championship because he arrived with good pedigree from his time at Maribor although he did struggle with Sturm Graz.

While he says he doesn’t regret anything and is confident he did everything right at Leeds, he will have made decisions that could be different if he had the chance to turn back the clock and think again.

His job was to get Leeds back into the Premier League and he fell victim to not putting points on the board as Massimo Cellino constantly watched over his shoulder.

All parties involved have now moved on and Leeds’ focus will be to stack up the wins under Redfearn once the international break is over.
