“Csaba‘s CV is very impressive and his enthusiasm very infectious but after we met, the Board spoke to many people who had worked with him in football and I believe we have secured a fantastic coach, man-manager and a highly experienced tactician. I am delighted to welcome him as the new Dundee United Manager.”

I look forward to meeting the players. There is a good squad and good staff here and we want to win the Ladbrokes Championship.”
