Leeds United fans have been reacting in their droves to a tweet that Andrea Radrizzani posted following a recent article regarding the club and potential future investment.
Is Marcelo Bielsa capable of taking Leeds United up?
Martyn, the talk was about how Leeds will be again competitive and how we are working hard to be back as a top club again …and eventually when makes sense open to other partners. Thank you

The Times ran with an exclusive interview with the Whites’ chief on Monday, where the Italian revealed he had three possible options on the table that could help to improve the Championship outfit.
Qatari Sports Investments were one group to have been named as a potential investor that ‘could help Leeds to compete with Manchester City’, although it appears Radrizzani did not feel comfortable with what had been published.
The owner took to Twitter to send a message to The Times journalist, Martyn Ziegler, once the article had been published and looked to quash any potential rumours and expectations that could have been made from the interview, with him possibly hinting nothing will be done imminently.
“Martyn, the talk was about how Leeds will be again competitive and how we are working hard to be back as a top club again …and eventually when makes sense open to other partners. Thank you” he wrote.
Indeed, that tweet has got a number of fans talking on Twitter, with many of them sharing their opinions to what Radrizzani had said.
Here are just some of their immediate reactions:
Andrea you have done an amazing job with our beloved leeds a. And we all should be grateful you have saved us from a mad man.
Investment is the only way forward. Better than borrowing and us ending up in debt. We trust you. And support you and know you will do whats best 4 Lufc

We won’t be competitive until you put your hand in your pocket when it’s desperately needed.

Investment that makes the club stronger has to go ahead sooner rather than later

Mad to turn down this investment if on table. No excuses when we need to strengthen in Jan

We all appreciate what you have done and what you are doing but to turn down massive investment from QSI is madness! Now is the time Andrea do what’s right for the fans!
