Radrizzani posts Twitter verdict after Leeds suffer costly defeat against Wolves
By Amir Mir
Andrea Radrizzani has insisted Leeds’ play-off destiny is “in our hands” after they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Wolves on Easter Monday.
Garry Monk’s side slipped out of the top six at a crucial stage of the season as they dropped costly points at Elland Road.
Nouha Dicko struck just before the break when his low drive was enough to beat Rob Green between the sticks.
Additionally, Fulham saw off ten-man Aston Villa earlier on in the day as they moved into the final play-off spot.
Co-owner Radrizzani posted this passionate message to the Yorkshire outfit as the promotion race is set to go the wire.

“Disappointing result today,” Radrizzani wrote on his personal Twitter account. “We deserved more, but our destiny is still in out hands.”

At this moment in time, Leeds are in seventh on 73 points from their 43 matches, level on points with sixth-placed Fulham and two points behind fifth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.
Those two teams currently above them will play each other on the final day of the season which means if Monk’s side can win their final three matches of the campaign then they can secure a promotion spot.
Italian Radrizzani will be hoping his team can emulate Chris Hughton’s Brighton and earn promotion to the Premier League.
The Seagulls, who beat Wigan 2-1 on Monday afternoon, confirmed their promotion after third-placed Huddersfield were held to a 1-1 draw against Derby later on in the day.
It means Newcastle, Huddersfield, Reading, Wednesday, Fulham and Leeds will fight for the remaining two places left to secure promotion.
