Radrizzani furious with Orta as 'ridiculous' Leeds footage emerges - pundit
Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani will be furious with Victor Orta’s behaviour at Elland Road, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed Orta’s row with a fan at the stadium following their 2-2 draw with Brentford was “ridiculous”.
As shown by Sky Sports, Leeds’ director of football remonstrated angrily with somebody in the crowd for an extended period, appeared to stick two fingers up as well as putting his index finger to his mouth to shush them.
It came after Patrick Bamford returned from injury to rescue the Whites a late 2-2 draw.
He was introduced as a substitute after almost three months out to score a 95th-minute equaliser.
“I think it was silly from Orta,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“Arguing with one of your fans is not a good look. You might hear fans say stuff, complaining, but they are entitled to do that. They pay their money.
“Unless there was something more said that we don’t know but if it was just a fan moaning with the performance then I think that’s ridiculous.
“I’m sure the owners will have a word with him because it didn’t look good. It just didn’t make sense.
“Fans are entitled to their opinions, that’s what they pay their money for.”
The result leaves Leeds six points above the relegation zone after 15 games of the Premier League season.
The Yorkshire giants travel to European Champions Chelsea next weekend on an unbeaten run of three games.
