Simon Jordan shares Leeds love, makes 'Fascinating' Radrizzani claim

Simon Jordan has been gushing over Leeds United and he cannot wait to see what the future holds for the team under Marcelo Bielsa and Andrea Radrizzani.

The pair have already taken the club to great heights and Jordan has been hugely impressed with the style of play under Bielsa.

Now he is intrigued to see how the club develops as it looks to build on a successful first season back in the top flight, and Jordan believes Leeds could be looking towards the top of the table.

He told talkSPORT’s White & Jordan show, “Leeds are everyone’s second favourite team now because of the bravery of their football.

“Now that needs to morph and Radrizzani will want them to morph into a side that rattles around the top echelons of the Premier League.

“That may mean a style change and it may not and that’s the intriguing part.

“Can Bielsa translate this brilliant style of football that’s brave, aggressive, front foot, couldn’t care less about the opposition football into a side that goes to the top of the table of there or thereabouts?

“I think it’s a fascinating one and whichever way its going to be it’s going to be intriguing because of the mix of Bielsa, the way Leeds play and the ambitions of Radrizzani.”

Aiming for Europe

Radrizzani has made no secret of his ambition to take us into Europe and next season there is a good chance of that goal becoming a reality.

This year we have perhaps performed above expectation, with many of our promotion winners proving to be a lot better than many expected.

As a result, we are in tenth place and just seven shy points of a Europa League qualification place.

Teams like West Ham and Leicester have shown that with good management and astute recruitment it is possible to break into those places.

And since promotion we have had exactly that, with all four of our 2020 summer signings impressing at times this season.

If Victor Orta can upgrade a few players, such as Gjanni Alioski at left-back, while adding depth in midfield and up-front, then we have a great chance of improving next term.

We have been superb at times but need to add some consistency to our game, and avoiding defeats to teams like Brighton will be key.

We have confidence in those running the club though and believe it will not be long before we are back on the European stage.
