New Dundee United manager Czaba Laszlo speaks to his players during his first training session with the team.

The Hungarian said his main ambition is to get the Tangerines back where the club “belongs” in the Scottish Premiership.

United will face Northern Irish side Crusaders at Tannadice in the Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Speaking on Wednesday László said: “This is not a big secret that we want to go back to the Scottish premier league” he added.

“(That) definitely is our target. This is the second year in the Scottish Championship and I think this club, which has so huge a history and made so much history in Scottish football, belongs back in the highest level.”


László has an impressive track record having recently brought Slovakia’s DAC Dunajska Streda from the relegation zone to the top of the league,  setting a new league record of 16 games unbeaten in the process.

The side only narrowly missed out on Europa League qualification.
