BRIAN McDERMOTT is busy planning for the future at Leeds United as the npower Championship campaign heads towards a climax.
The Whites are safe from relegation with two matches to play and McDermott has turned his attention to a promotion bid in the 2013/4 season.
He said: “We have to make sure that when we come back for training in June that we are as fit as we possibly can be.
“Individually and collectively as a group we will do what we have to do.
“I have to make sure that the football club does right by the players and we get all the details right.
“We have to give ourselves the best platform and then the players have got to give the club everything they can, day in and day out.”
He added: “This club has spent nearly ten years trying to get into the next league. We have to be open, we have to be honest. We have to be open with the fans. We have to be open with ourselves.
“I’ll be open with the board, the chief executive and I will say exactly what I feel needs to be done and that’s why they have brought me here.”
