Eidur Gudjohnsen insists he will accept any criticism aimed at his new club, though the Leeds United owner joked on Sunday he might just “exhibit” his side’s start against Fulham to drown out dissenters.
The Icelandic former striker, brought in as technical director last season, has vowed to ensure he and his staff run one of the best footballing academies in the world with the exception of Manchester United and Chelsea.
Leeds lost their opening game against Fulham on Saturday, with reports suggesting fans were unhappy with the way they were being run.
“It’s going to take time,” Gudjohnsen told BBC Radio 5 Live. “It’s going to take time to work out if we’ve done the right things or not.
“I have to accept any criticism that comes my way and I would expect that from the fans, I wouldn’t expect it from the club I play for or the club I’m working for.”
Gudjohnsen, who was at Chelsea as Anzhi Makhachkala were relegated from the Russian Premier League last season, has led his technical staff to a training camp in Spain.
