Andrea Radrizzani appears to sabotage Leeds United as Jon Dahl Tomasson update emerges

Andrea Radrizzani looks like he’s sabotaging Leeds United by ensuring Sampdoria go for one of their managerial targets.

The Italian recently completed the takeover of the Serie B club amid talks that he will be walking away for good from Leeds.

Currently, he is the majority shareholder in the club but that is likely to change with the San Francisco 49ers set to complete a full takeover.

Once the new owners take charge, they will have a big job on their hands, no less than appointing a new sporting director and manager.

With Sam Allardyce leaving after four games in charge, the onus is now going to be on another manager to get Leeds back to the top flight.

Club Doria 46 [08 June] claimed that Blackburn Rovers manager Jon Dahl Tomasson was on the Whites’ radar in the coming weeks.

However, they have also reported that Radrizzani wants to bring the Danish manager to Sampdoria and help them with their relegation quest.

This is an early sign of him sabotaging Leeds and despite still officially being the owner, his priorities clearly seem to lie somewhere else.

Offering Elland Road as security for a loan to purchase Sampdoria is another example that he’s moved on from Leeds and their future is not what’s of importance to him anymore with his focus solely on his new venture in Italy.

In other Leeds United news, Phil Hay claims that a Whites senior player is now set to leave the club at a discounted fee post relegation and will not be signing a new contract.
