Radrizzani delivers two-word response as journalist discusses leagues being voided

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani seems to have reiterated his desire to see the 2019/20 Championship season reach its conclusion on the pitch.

Leeds have nine matches to play of their currently-suspended promotion bid but there have been some worrying updates in European football lately with the Dutch Eredivisie season being declared void.

There are also suggestions in the media that the same will happen in both France and Spain, leading to NY Times journalist Tariq Panja to question the rush to scrap entire seasons as though they never happened.

Panja said: “[I’m] wondering why there’s a rush to finish this season by August and not wait a little longer for the health situation to improve? The next season will be affected anyway, so why not wait? player contract issues, something else?”

As a Leeds fan who is desperate to see the season completed, it is hard to disagree with Panja because as he says, football won’t be back on for some time so we might as well just push back next season rather than finish this one without it being properly concluded.

Leeds chief Radrizzani also agrees as he took to his personal Twitter account on Tuesday night to simply say: “Good point.”

We need to forget about next season for now and deal with that at a later point. What matters is completing what is left to play of the current campaign.

It would be one of the biggest injustices of football for Leeds to have their promotion bid cancelled and for Liverpool to be denied their first-ever Premier League title.
