These Leeds fans split about news Radrizzani considering QSI offer

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani is considering an offer from Qatari Sports Investment (QSI) for a stake in the club, according to the Times.

Radrizzani has claimed that outside investment from QSI could result in Leeds competing with the likes of Manchester City, who have dominated English football in recent years.

On the surface, that sounds amazing for Leeds, however, not all the fans are happy about taking money from QSI.

You can split fans into two camps. Those who want to see Leeds back at the top table whatever the cost, with one saying he’d sell his own gran for that to happen.

Others would prefer Leeds to earn their way there and not to take “blood money”.

It’s an interesting debate and one that ultimately comes down to whether you can split sports from politics.

If you can do that then you just want to see your team succeed. If not, there’s an issue.

And this goes beyond politics into money. The days of teams being able to grind their way up into the upper echelons of the Premier League are gone. If you want to succeed at the top you need big outside investment and even then there are no guarantees.

It’s an issue that’s split Leeds fans down the middle – here’s a good sample from them today on Twitter:
