Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter after club owner Andrea Radrizzani hit out at his own playing squad.

Radrizzani has had plenty to say in the last week by hitting out at Championship leaders Wolves and their “unfair” advantage over others in the league by using super-agent Jorge Mendes.

The Italian businessman, who took full control of Leeds last year, faced a backlash from fans when he took to Twitter to moan about Wolves after he saw Paul Heckingbottom’s men lose 3-0 to the West Midlands club at Elland Road.

However this time the Whites chief’s words have been met with a mixed response from fans after he pointed the finger at certain members of the squad.

“As a club we support them with everything. We did everything they wanted but we didn’t get back the commitment, the passion and the spirit. I don’t want players in my team with this behaviour. I hope they can learn,” he said on TalkSport radio, as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post reported Phil Hay on his personal Twitter account.

That prompted a meltdown of discussion on Twitter where Leeds fans seemed divided over Radrizzani’s latest outburst.

One United supporter claimed that Radrizzani has “gone full Cellino” in reference to the previous leadership at Elland Road.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Leeds’ results really do not make for good reading, under the leadership of both Thomas Christiansen and Heckingbottom, who replaced the Dane last month.

The Whites have won just once since Boxing Day across all competitions and their season is pretty much over with them nowhere near the bottom three and well away from the play-off spots.

Next up for Heckingbottom’s men will be a testing clash against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday in a Yorkshire derby.

In other Leeds United news, it has been confirmed that Heckingbottom was on the phone to this Premier League centre-forward just hours after arriving at Elland Road.
