And the 49-year-old has revealed that Cellino believes he will need two years to put everything together at Leeds.
“The owner’s put a lot of money in and he’s got a plan and a vision. It’s in its infancy and at this moment it’s tough," the Leeds boss is quoted as saying by the Yorskhire Evening Post.
"I’m not speaking for them all but I think the vast majority [of supporters] realise we’ve got a new owner and he’s got a vision for the club. They realise we’ve got a young side who are going through change.
“In the conversations I’ve had with Massimo, he said it was going to take two years for him to put it all together here. He’s been in this situation before at Cagliari. He’s been in a situation where it was tough. Like I said, it’s in its infancy at the moment so it’s going to take time.”
