There should be little time wasted at Leeds United.

It has been a busier first week than Andrea Radrizzani will have planned at Leeds United.

The new Whites owner was left shell shocked last week when Garry Monk resigned as head coach, with the full reasons still undisclosed publicly.

Leeds have been busy appointing Victor Orta as new technical director, and a managerial appointment is expected to follow.

While the summer has only just started, time is of the essence, and Radrizzani showed his understanding of the situation last night by retweeting a message from a fan, urging him to 'crack on'.

Following Orta's unveiling, Leeds are strongly tipped to be ready to bring in Aitor Karanka as head coach, with the pair working together at Middlesbrough.

Bookies SkyBet have Karanka priced at 1/5 on.

There is a Spanish connection on the board, with Radrizzani bringing in Ivan Bravo last month.

In the past few days Angus Kinnear has also joined from West Ham as managing director.

'Cracking on' appears to be exactly what Radrizzani is doing, and it would not be a surprise at all if a managerial announcement is made within the next 48 hours.
