Andrea Radrizzani changes his Twitter profile, Leeds fans will be impressed

By Alex Stevens

New Leeds joint owner Andre Radrizzani has updated his Twitter profile to reflect his takeover of the Championship giants.

It was announced on Wednesday that the sports media mogul had bought 50 per cent of Massimo Cellino’s stake in the club, with the erratic Italian retaining the other half-share.

To reflect his lofty position at Elland Road, multi-millionaire businessman Radrizzani has changed the profile of his social media account.

He has added a picture of Leeds’ Elland Road stadium as the background picture of his personal Twitter account and has changed his biography, with his five credits now including the key one of ‘co-owner of LUFC’.

This was noticed by one eagle-eyed Leeds fan on Sunday morning, who congratulated Radrizzani on the alterations.
