'Great' - Radrizzani responds to Leeds fan on Twitter over January concerns

With the January window approaching, Leeds United fans are clearly starting to feel agitated over any potential business at Elland Road. 

Last season, the Whites completed only one deal to sign Kiko Casilla. Everyone remembers the controversy surrounding Daniel James and his collapsed move, and that could have made people even more nervous.

There are no guarantees that it was the fact that Leeds didn’t sign anyone played a hand in failing to earn promotion, but it definitely played some part when Marcelo Bielsa didn’t have many fresh faces to call upon in the middle of injury crisis’.

One fan took to Twitter on Friday to admit that his main fear was that Andrea Radrizzani would not spend much money once again to strengthen the squad for a promotion push.

To his and most likely everyone’s surprise, the Italian owner actually responded that evening admitting that Leeds need people who have faith in the players and the manager at this moment in time whilst wishing a happy holiday season.

There was a sense of sarcasm behind the start of the Tweet from Radrizzani, who will most likely be fed up of the constant demands made by fans.

We have to say though, it wouldn’t be a bad decision for Leeds to strengthen in January, with the club having been in this position too many times and always being made to pay for it.

Jack Clarke has already been recalled by Tottenham recently, and should Eddie Nketiah follow suit back to Arsenal – Victor Orta will need to be busy next month.

Midfield is looking light with Jamie Shackleton and Adam Forshaw both missing the 1-1 draw against Preston, and players in that area such as Mateusz Klich are simply looking tired on and off the ball right now.

Radrizzani may have faith in the squad, but it takes much more than that to earn promotion to the Premier League, let’s just hope we don’t find out the hard way once again this season.
