Leeds United can now call on the experienced Spaniard for support.
The Spaniard was previously employed by Real Madrid, for whom he acted as director of strategy for seven years from 2003 to 2010.
More recently he has overseen the Aspire Academy in Qatar and he will continue his role there as director general despite being appointed to the Leeds board.
Speaking after the announcement, Bravo told the Evening Post, “Leeds United is a club steeped in prestige with an extremely proud fan base and I am thrilled to join the board of directors.
“I hope my experience gained across the game will add value for the club and I look forward to working with the ownership, management and the whole team to take Leeds United forward on and off the pitch.”
Leeds looked on course for a play-off spot just a few short weeks ago, but an alarming dip in form means they are now seventh, three points outside the top six with two matches remaining.
Garry Monk’s side take on Norwich City at Elland Road this weekend before travelling to Wigan Athletic for the last league game of the season.
They must win both and hope one of the sides above them slips up.
