Danny Mills has criticised Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani for making comments about the “wrong decisions” made after the club’s defeat to Millwall on Saturday.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds and England defender says it was unwise of the Italian to suggest the officials had made an error, having seen Gaetano Berardi sent off for a foul on the way to a 2-1 loss for the Whites.

Taking to Twitter after the defeat to Millwall, Radrizzani was left fuming over decisions which he claims have gone against Leeds during his time as owner, which seemed to include Berardi’s red card at the Den considering when the tweet was sent.

While the Swiss defender’s sending off was rescinded upon appeal, Mills has been critical of the owner’s decision to take to social media and take aim at the officials, with the likes of managers and players having been punished for comments made in the past.

Mills told Football Insider: “It’s not a great idea, is it? In this day and age it’s hard when people want to hear from the chairman but some of the best chairman and best owners are the ones who just stay silent.

“Let the manager, let the coach, let the team do the talking. Maybe it’s just a little bit of frustration from Radrizzani, of course he wants to do well, he wants his team to do well.

“Saying things on Twitter about officials and teams and players is never a good idea.” 

Radrizzani has been quite a vocal owner during his time at Elland Road, often engaging with fans on social media, while he opened his doors to the cameras during the Leeds United: Take Us Home documentary.

He has been in charge at the club since 2017, buying out controversial owner Massimo Cellino after initially joining as an investor alongside his fellow countryman.
