Former Leeds United defender Lucas Radebe has thanked the club’s owner Andrea Radrizanni for the recent success and a potential Premier League promotion.
The success of the Yorkshire club under the guidance of Italian businessman Radrizanni has been somewhat underrated of late, with the Whites still in the second tier of English football. However, with Marcelo Bielsa guiding his side to top spot in the Championship as things stand, an automatic promotion to the Premier League and a league title could change that feeling.
Leeds sit one point ahead of second-placed West Bromwich Albion and seven points ahead of third-placed Fulham, leaving them firm favourites to seal a return to England’s top flight.
Having watched a documentary on the club, former defender Radebe, who spent 11 years at Elland Road, has praised Radrizzani for his efforts and time at the helm of the club.
Reacting to Radebe’s tweets, Radrizzani and these Leeds fans aired their views:

Have to say Andrea the club and fans owe you a massive congrats. Best owner for decacdes and what an intelligent huge coup securing, Marcelo. I feel like we have a principled and strong team at Elland Road and amidst all the noise (of which there is plenty) you stayed strong.
