Leeds United chiefs

Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear has said that all money from season ticket sales will be spent on new players and salaries, but fans aren’t convinced by what he’s saying.

Kinnear also said that lessons had been learned from the 2017/18 season, which has left Leeds in 14th place in the Championship.

Kinnear confirmed that making the play-offs would be the minimum objective for next season and that support from fans would be “critical” to the club’s success.

Talking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Kinnear said: “One hundred per cent of the money generated from season ticket sales is put back into the first team in the form of transfer fees or salaries.”

“The board has agreed a recruitment strategy with the head coach, director of football and scouting team, founded on the learnings from this season and we are expecting an exciting summer.”

“Our objective is to secure a play-off place.”

Fans have taken to Twitter to say that this sounds exactly the same as what he said last season.

One fan also said that season ticket sales would amount to £9million and that Leeds would need a lot more than that.

Victor Orta was the subject of much criticism, with one fan saying he had renewed his season ticket in the hope that Orta is sacked.

However, a couple of fans did stick up for the beleaguered recruitment man.

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to Kinnear’s words on Wednesday:
