Adam Pearson promises two things Leeds have desperately lacked in recent months

The executive director has been discussing the state of Leeds as a club.

Adam Pearson has promised supporters two things in short supply of late at Leeds United: order and stability, according to the Daily Express.

Indeed, the executive director - appointed to be Massimo Cellino's right-hand man recently - was reflecting on the club's appointment of Uwe Rosler as their new head coach.

Pearson insists the German's 'very strong' principles will help the club forward and says a sense of 'order and stability' will now start to become apparent at Elland Road.

Should that prove to be the case, it would be in stark contrast to anything else seen at Leeds in the last few months...

Pearson told reporters at a swift - unlike Cellino's last week - press conference: "I think you will find over the coming weeks that there is a sense of order and stability that starts to pervade the club. We have brought in a head coach who knows his own mind and who is going to be very strong in those principles. He will have my full support alongside him."

Pearson went on to further praise Rosler, whose most recent spells in management came at Brentford and Wigan Athletic, suggesting he is a 'strong character' and 'top coach.' 

The Leeds director said: "Uwe is a top coach, a strong character, a strong personality who will inspire this club and this crowd and get the ball rolling and get some momentum into this club."

Whether a strong personality really goes together with Cellino ownership is a different matter, of course. Despite claims to the contrary, predecessor Neil Redfearn was anything but 'weak.'

So, are Pearson's promises wishful thinking? Or is the executive director in place to actually steady the ship and counterbalance - along with Rosler - the recent chaos at Elland Road?
