Chairman of English club gives verdict on Leeds team after summer business concluded
By Harvey Byrne
Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has told that Leeds are “looking very strong” after they concluded their transfer business on Thursday.
The Yorkshire giants have gone under mass changes this summer following last season’s seventh placed finish with Andrea Radrizzani taking over, while last season’s key men such as manager Garry Monk, Chris Wood and Kyle Bartley have all departed.
This has allowed Radrizzani to appoint Danish boss Thomas Christiansen and then bring in a total of 16 senior players, including permanent deals for both Pontus Jansson and Hadi Sacko.
Leeds rounded up their summer window with the signings of forward duo Pawel Cibicki and Pierre-Michel Lasogga from Malmo and Hamburger respectively and this led to one fan asking MacAnthony on social media if he agreed that the Yorkshire giants were going up.
@DMAC102 Leeds are going up, you agree?!

The outspoken chairman then replied via his own personal Twitter account, stating “quite possibly” and that Leeds were “looking very strong” this season.
