Leeds: Joe Wainman slams Andrea Radrizzani’s latest tweet after the Carlos Corberan news

Leeds: Joe Wainman slams Andrea Radrizzani's latest tweet after the Carlos Corberan news - Leeds United News

Joe Wainman has been left unimpressed by Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani’s tweet about a new manager potentially being appointed soon.

The Lowdown: Corberna won’t be joining

The Leeds owner tweeted that the club were hopeful of some ‘white smoke’ by Wednesday morning, but following the news of Carlos Corberan signing an extension at West Bromwich Albion, that may no longer be possible.

It appears as though Leeds were sniffing around their former coach, which has seemingly forced the Baggies into offering him a new deal to keep the Spaniard at the club and get them back into the Premier League.

Leeds appear to have a shortlist of candidates, including Rayo Vallecano manager Andoni Iraola, as well as a much more left-field option in the form of Real Madrid legend Raul, though it is believed that he has opted against succeeding Marsch.

The Latest: Radrizzani playing games once again

Radrizzani has once again appeared to try and get fans’ hopes up with a tweet, much like he did when they attempted to sign Bamba Dieng in the summer, only for that move to fall through.

Wainman was left less than happy on Twitter, taking their failure to appoint a new man to this point to mean that an approach for Corberan has swiftly fallen flat.

Reacting to the Baggies boss penning an extension, he wrote: “So Corberan would have been the one, hence the white smoke tweet, but WBA offered a bumper deal and lengthy contract. Radz went too soon again. What we saying?”

The Verdict: Leeds not looking to rush into an appointment

It’s clear that Radrizzani has a history of jumping the gun when it comes to announcements and getting the hopes of the Leeds fanbase up higher than necessary – and this certainly won’t help his popularity.

However, Phil Hay did indeed claim that the club wouldn’t be rushing into a decision to appoint a manager before either of their upcoming games against Manchester United, which shows they are looking to do their due diligence on candidates.

Leeds fans will be very keen to see a new man in place well before their clash against Everton next weekend and the Southampton fixture that follows, as they could well be the springboard required to catapult them away from the drop zone.
