Many Leeds United fans have reacted to an article sharing comments made by Cardiff City’s Mehmet Dalman on Championship promotion plans.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites sit top of the table and are in pole position for a return to the Premier League through the automatic promotion route. However, with football at a standstill in the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic, there have been some question marks regarding Leeds’ promotion prospects.
Speaking to The Sunday Times, Dalman has said that promotion is key after seeing Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani invest enormous amounts of money into the Yorkshire club. He said: “The Championship has always been an investment for owners trying to chase the holy grail of promotion, knowing if they fail they would be suffering financially.
“The idea that we will not finish the league is absurd as that would leave clubs like Leeds and West Brom in a difficult position because they have invested a lot to get promoted. Not finishing the season, even if it’s in September or October, and you scrap next season to do so, would be a travesty.”
Reacting to the article shared by journalist Beren Cross, these Leeds fans gave their views on Dalman’s remarks:
