There seems to be a good relationship between head coach Christiansen and director of football Orta.

A number of players were signed in the summer transfer window, including Samuel Saiz and Felix Wiedwald, and they have done quite well so far.

Martinez, now the manager of the Belgium national football team, knows English football inside out, having been in charge of Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton.

When asked who he spoke to before heading to Leeds, Christiansen told The Yorkshire Evening Post: “I had my conversations with Roberto Martinez.

"But if there is something I need, if I speak to Victor Orta, he is the Wikipedia of football.”
