My name is Mark Viduka. I recently got my coaching badges, and I was looking for a new club. I was sending CV's left right and centre to try and find a new job even sending one out to my beloved Leeds United, even though I knew I wouldn't get any response from such a high profile club. But that all changed. On the 12th of July, I received an E-Mail.
Mark Viduka, this is David Haigh, owner of the GFH company and Managing Director of Leeds United. I had a look at your CV, and it's not that impressive I have to say. BUT, you have been around at the for quite a while, the fans love you, so we have nothing to lose really. I would like to meet up with you and have an interview to see what ideas you have and what you can do to make Leeds a better football club.
Cheers, Mark Haigh
I couldn't beleive my eyes. An interview with Leeds? I didn't expect to get an interview from an Npower League 2 team let alone the 2nd tier of English football. I quickly replied that I was elated and that I'd meet up with him for the interview.
I couldn't think straight. An interview to become the manager of Leeds United? That's mental, this must be a dream. I was scratching my head and thinking of clever responses that i could give to Mr.Haigh. But i couldn't think of anything. I was so busy having daydreams about what it's like to be manager, and dreaming about taking Leeds back to the Premier League, that i didn't realise it was time for the interview.
The interview went by like a flash. I thought it went well, but you never know. I didn't get any response for 2 days, and I was starting to lose hope. I got up one morning and I found another E-Mail.
