Leeds fans react angrily to Radrizzani Twitter message after defeat against Wolves
By Amir Mir
Leeds fans have reacted angrily to Andrea Radrizzani’s Twitter message after Leeds suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves on Easter Monday.
The club’s co-owner felt that Garry Monk’s side “deserved more” from the match as he urged the club to “believe” after they dropped out of the play-off places.
Supporters were angry and annoyed because they felt that the club failed to do any significant business during the January transfer window.
Leeds added attacking duo Mo Barrow and Alfonso Pedraza, both loan deals, during that month, but fans believe more players should have been signed to help them in their promotion charge.
At this moment in time, the Whites are seventh in the table, level on points with sixth-placed Fulham and two points behind fifth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.

Both those teams picked up victories on Easter Monday, with Fulham beating Aston Villa 3-1 and Wednesday edging past Ian Holloway’s QPR at Loftus Road.
Supporters feel that the lack of activity in January has come back to haunt the club as three matches of the season remain.
Despite sitting outside of the top six, promotion is still in Leeds’ hands because the two teams above them play each other on the final day of the season.
That means Monk’s team need to win their final three matches of the campaign to ensure their play-off spot.
They take on Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion this Saturday, looking to pick up their first win since April 8.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

We could do with significantly more capable hands than those that dealt with the last transfer window…
