He is said to have an excellent relationship with the recently appointed Leeds chairman, John McKenzie, which should go some way towards helping the club regain a sound financial footing.
But fans of the club could be disappointed with the continuing ruthlessness that the club has been showing towards its biggest football assets.
With Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Fowler and Robbie Keane all leaving last year, things look set to continue. Winger Harry Kewell, goalkeeper Paul Robinson, and striker Mark Viduka are all rumoured to be leaving this summer in an attempt to reduce the clubs massive debt.
