Radrizzani report makes Leeds United’s end of season a nervy one

Radrizzani report makes Leeds United’s end of season a nervy one

It has been a largely enjoyable campaign for Leeds United supporters this season with the team playing some wonderful stuff under manager Marcelo Bielsa.

However, with so much at stake, that feeling of enjoyment could quickly be about to change to nervousness.

The Breakdown

The Daily Mail reports that should Leeds fail to gain promotion to the Premier League, owner Andrea Radrizzani will be forced to consider selling the Yorkshire club.

The English newspaper states Radrizzani feels he would find it difficult to make the necessary investments for another season where promotion is the aim, while key players would also have to be sold.

A rumoured break clause (via Daily Mail) in Bielsa’s contract could see him leave in the summer, too, should Leeds remain in the Championship, making it all or nothing for the Whites this term.

Simply put, the pressure is now truly on for Bielsa and his men as the business end of the Championship campaign approaches.

With all of that being said, it is hard to see Leeds not winning promotion from this point. They have shown this season that they are capable of putting strong runs together, and more of the same should easily see them finish in either of the automatic promotion spots.

And if not, promotion via the play-offs remains a very viable route. The way Leeds dominate matches under Bielsa could prove to be too much for any of the other play-off candidates in a knockout tie.
