'What a disgrace' - Radrizzani responds after Leeds boss Christiansen attends PL clash

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has taken to Twitter to defend manager Thomas Christiansen for his decision to watch Manchester United face Manchester City on Sunday.

Christiansen visited Old Trafford to watch the Premier League clash, but faced a bit of a backlash from some fans who were not happy with seeing the Elland Road boss going to watch their bitter rivals play.

Radrizzani jumped to the Dane’s defence, insisting that he has no issue with the Whites boss going to attend the Manchester derby.

“Ohh what a disgrace…relax guys. Our man Christiansen has enjoyed a nice afternoon of top football with his family. What is wrong with that? And the atmosphere motivated him even more to bring us back at that level. Let’s stay behind the team win the next game,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Monday night, quoting a fan’s tweet moaning about the manager which was soon deleted.

The majority of Leeds fans seem to have no issue with Christiansen attending another game, however the minority appear to have grabbed Radrizzani’s attention enough to warrant him to take to Twitter.

Leeds are currently seventh in the Championship standings after their brilliant 3-1 win at QPR on Saturday which saw Kemar Roofe net a hat-trick.

Next up for the Whites is a clash against Norwich at Elland Road on Saturday.

Norwich are currently 16th in the league table but go into the game after their own 3-1 win at the weekend over Sheffield Wednesday.

They were in terrible form before that win with no victories in eight league games.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have agreed a six-figure swoop for this playmaker.
