While Leeds United have announced the signing of Thomas Christiansen as their new head coach, we have seen a move like this before.
Like the YEP reported on the announcement of Christiansen, the appointment bares a few similarities to the addition of Dario Milanic as head coach back in September 2014.
Both managers had managed in Europe for minor county clubs and had succeeded in getting them into a strong footing in Europe before leaving and taking the reigns at Elland Road.
But instead of getting you all scared and worried that this manager will last the same amount of 32 days as Milanic, here's three differences;
Whereas Milanic's playing career was restricted to Serbian and Austrian national leagues, Christiansen had flourished with different spells all over Europe.
Christiansen has enjoyed spells in Spanish football with Barcelona, Racing Santander, Gijon and Villarreal and although everyone keeps saying it was 'Barcelona B' the coaching standards at the Nou B team will be better than most clubs around the country.
The Spanish capped striker has also spent a total of six years in the German Bundesliga representing VFL Bochum and Hannover. The German competition is said to be the closest in comparison to the English divisions which will surely help him when focusing on his playing style.
What we can say is that Milanic's playing style was very old and outdated and didn't suit the club, whereas Christiansen has the know how of how to adapt within modern football.
However you feel about it, Leeds have a bumper new backroom that will be heavily involved in proceedings. The appointments of Ivan Bravo and Victor Orta especially.
Both Bravo and Orta are Spanish nationals that enjoy taking the reigns of the club and getting stuck in. Although Orta has been blamed for the miscommunication at Boro last season, every club finds someone to point their finger at.
With the two Spaniards handling day to day chores, it's likely that having a respected Spaniard in charge of the squad will be a major benefit.
Milanic's reign was marred with miscommunication, the club and the players didn't really get the chance to settle in with the manager and I doubt he even got the chance to find out all the names of his backroom staff never mind his players.
Christiansen is fluent in both English and Spanish and for a foreign manager, that's a welcome bonus.
He's got a plan!
I'm not sure about any other fan but when I had read about how Christiansen got the job with a PowerPoint I seriously considering packing some FM slides and heading to the FA for my badges.
Christiansen apparently wowed Radrizanni with a presentation dealing with where Monk fell short last season, how the club should play and where we need to strengthen. Now that is some interview!
The fact that the Spanish Dane is clued up means Leeds can hit the ground running.
The departed Milanic never had that opportunity, he came in to a club in despair in the ruins of the Hockaday appointment and only lasted 32 days, I bet he didn't even have a security badge or parking spot!
And there's the three reasons why it could work out better with Christiansen, we hope we've been able to clear any doubts and bump up your confidence in the new man.
The fact of the matter is; we're in good hands. The new owner has his sights set straight forward and I think Christiansen's appointment could be a move in the right direction. Give it time.
