Last season, he was on Twitter constantly talking about how important it is for the Whites to stay up and sending motivational messages.
Right now, he just does not seem to care and even if they get relegated, the chances are high that he eventually leaves the club.
San Francisco 49ers are waiting in the wings to complete the takeover and relegation undoubtedly will lower the valuation of the club.
This means that Radrizzani will be going back to the negotiating table with them in order to agree on a price.
It’s best that regardless of where they are next season the Whites start to rebuild under the 49ers Enterprises.
