Aston Villa's new owner says that emulating Leeds United for the wrong reasons is not on the agenda.
Their relegation was so abject that it has been suggested that Aston Villa could struggle to return to the big time at the first time of asking.
Roberto Di Matteo was officially named as Remi Garde's successor at Villa Park, while the Chiense businessman completed his takeover from Randy Lerner in a double bit of good news which has restored some level of optimism.
But now comes the hard part as Di Matteo tries to build a squad capable of enduring the rigours of a 46-match season next term. In a division as tough as the Championship, nothing is a given.
Leeds have been absent from England's top flight since 2004, something which Xia is conscious of, but the 39-year-old is confident that Aston Villa will not alternate between the second tier and League One for the next decade or so like their Yorkshire counterparts.
"For now I’m not focusing on anything else," he told The Mail.
"I don’t think we’ll end up like Leeds or like other teams who’ve come down from the Premier League and struggled for years and years. Why? Because I know exactly what the financial situation is here and I’m ready to invest.
"And I have confidence in my management team that they know what they’re doing and I’m going to let them do it."
