Ex-Leeds boss extends stay at Champions League club
Former Leeds United boss Darko Milanic has extended his stay at Slovenian outfit NK Maribor until 2021.
Milanic took over at Maribor in March 2016, with his new contract expected to keep him at the club for the next three and a half years.
The 49-year-old's spell at Leeds was best remembered for hardly ever happening, with then-owner Massimo Cellino sacking him after just 33 days in the job.
In the six games he was in charge for, The Whites failed to record any victories, drawing three and losing the same amount.
Šampionski trener o podaljšanju: “Zahvaljujem se za izkazano zaupanje, ki pa ga bo treba upravičiti. Rad sem tukaj, uživam ob delu in zagrabili bomo še bolj zavzeto kot doslej.”#MiSkupajEnoSmo pic.twitter.com/zSkvUbmNhk— NK Maribor (@nkmaribor) December 5, 2017
Under Milanic, Maribor secured qualification for this season's Champions League, but are yet to win as they sit bottom of Group E after five games.
The current campaign has seen them collect just two points, with a 7-0 defeat against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool the low-point of their European adventure.
Maribor will look to finish their Champions League spell on a high as they face second-place Sevilla tonight, who need a win to advance to the knock-out stages.
