Leeds fans have aired their delight on Twitter after the Yorkshire giants announced the appointment of Ivan Bravo to the club’s board of directors.

The Whites revealed on their official website on Tuesday morning that Bravo would join the Elland Road club with immediate effect.

Joint-owner Andrea Radrizzani heralded Bravo’s arrival, which is his most significant move since taking 50 per cent ownership of the club in late December.

The experienced senior man joins Leeds with an impressive CV after working at world giants Real Madrid for seven years between 2003 and 2010 as the club’s Director of Strategy.

He helped the La Liga giants win three league titles during a time that saw Barcelona establish their dominance and it is clear that his time at Real Madrid has impressed much of the Leeds fan base on social media.

On the pitch Leeds have endured a spell of dreadful form with just one win from their last six league matches, seeing them drop out of the play-offs for the first time since November and three points behind sixth placed Fulham with two matches left.

They will be keen to turn around that form soon with Norwich coming up next on Saturday before facing 23rd placed Wigan on the final day.
