Andrea Radrizzani has written a letter to the Football Association, Premier League and EFL to seek “clarification” on the relationship between Wolves and agent Jorge Mendes.
Talking to the BBC, Radrizzani confirmed that he was following through after posting a tweet that accused Wolves of acting illegally after the 3-0 loss at Elland Road.
Radrizzani has now said that he too wants to build a successful football team like Wolves and needs to know where he stands in relation to the rules.
To that effect he’s sent a letter to the three organisations so he knows where he stands for the summer transfer window.
“I want to understand the rules so I can act like them,” Radrizzani said.
“If it’s possible I would do the same as it’s been proven to be successful for the team. If not I will do as I did in the past, which I’m happy with too.
“It’s an opportunity for me to clarify the rules because I want to build a successful team on the pitch like Wolverhampton.
“To do it I might need to have five or six players on loan from an important agent or important clubs in Europe. I need to understand if it’s practical as I would like to do the same.
“I know many agents – I know Jorge Mendes well. I would love to have their help. I just want to know if it’s possible to do it within the rules.”
Football Insider verdict:
Some might say that Radrizzani’s grapes are extremely sour, and they might have a point. But there’s no harm in raising serious points to the authorities if it seems like the Championship is being played on an uneven pitch. Radrizzani’s point is fair. Is this okay? Because if it is I’ll do the same. Whether he’ll follow through or not is anyone’s guess and it’s hard to work out exactly what he wants at the moment – sanctions against Wolves or the freedom to do what they’re doing. At the least it’s a bit of drama in a season that, for Leeds, was petering out.
