Convincing players to come to Dundee United has not been easy, admits Csaba

Convincing players to come to Dundee United has not been easy, admits Csaba

Csaba Laszlo admits getting the players he wants to rebuild Dundee United this summer has not been easy.

But he’s revealed the more quality signings that have been made, the less difficult the process has become.

With other clubs, often from top divisions, also keen on players like Callum Booth, Craig Curran and Frederic Frans, the Tangerines had to pull out the stops to persuade them to sign up at Tannadice.

That saw Csaba making a point of speaking to every potential target individually, rather than doing business through their agents.

“If we are in the Premiership it is easier to attract staff and players, but we are not,” he said.

“I have talked to every single player we have signed to convince them to come to Dundee United.

“It was not an agent calling them to tell them Dundee United were interested, it was the manager calling to say you are important.

“I think this was a reason why we’ve got players. It’s a lot of work and it’s not finished.

“Frans and Booth both had offers from Premiership clubs here, Frans also from the top division in Belgium.

“They have come here and, when other players see that, it made it better for us to get others to come as well.”

Csaba has also revealed not one of the new faces had a problem with the new 25-miles rule he’s introduced.

From now on, every player will have to stay no further away from Tannadice than that and, contrary to what some predicted, it’s not been a problem.

“Before it could be Willo Flood, myself and some directors travelling on the team bus, now every player will be together,” he added.
