Ex-Deportivo La Coruna coach Victor confirms Leeds talks

Former Deportivo La Coruna coach Victor wants to pursue a career in England.

AS says since the end of last season he's been analysing both the Premier League and Championship, making regular trips to the UK in order to meet fellow coaches, watch live matches and fully immerse himself in the language, culture and traditions of the English game.

Victor had been linked with Leeds United and said: "Last summer there was contact from two English clubs; one Premier League team and one in the Championship.

"Two clubs have got in contact with me recently, one of them was Leeds, but in the end they went with another option. All we can do is wait, but we have a very active way of waiting."

He added: "Funnily enough, my first experience there was against Leeds in the Champions League quarter finals. They had a great team, with players like Viduka, Kewell, Ferdinand, Harte...They were too good for us on the night in that first leg (3-0), but what most impressed me was the incredible atmosphere at Elland Road, I'll never forget that for as long as I live."
