Andrea Radrizzani delivers Twitter update on Leeds manager search
By Danny Wright
Andrea Radrizzani has urged Leeds fans to remain patient as the club search for a new manager.
Garry Monk quit Elland Road almost two weeks ago on May 25 and fans have started to become worried that the Whites owner is taking too long to find a successor.
However Radrizzani has since took to his personal Twitter account to confirm that the Yorkshire club are entering talks with at least one applicant over the course of this week.
“I understand frustration, we are meeting candidates this week. It is important we take the time to make the best decision for the club,” he said on Tuesday.

Radrizzani gained completed control of Leeds just two days before Monk decided to quit the club after buying the remaining shares from the controversial Massimo Cellino.

According to SkyBet, Pep Clotet, Alan Pardew and Claudio Ranieri are among the favourites to replace Monk at the Elland Road helm.
Clotet joined Leeds with Monk in 2016 as assistant manager after working together during their days at Swansea.
The 40-year-old has never been in charge of the team but according to the Daily Mail he was once offered the chance to take charge of Brentford, before declining the offer because of his loyalty towards Monk.
Leeds finished just outside the play-off places in the recently-ended campaign.
After spending most of the second half of the season in the top six, a poor run of form saw them knocked down to seventh by Fulham.
In other Leeds news, fans have reacted to reports saying that this 27-year-old is set to leave the Whites.
