Radrizzani delivers bold two word verdict on Leeds transfer activity in Twitter exchange
Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has boldly stated that he “definitely” feels as though the current squad are stronger than they were 12 months ago.
The Whites have seen a handful of players depart over the past two transfer windows to be replaced by new recruits at Elland Road, which has included first team stars Chris Wood, Rob Green and Charlie Taylor all leaving to move to the Premier League.
The club’s overhaul over both the summer and the winter markets has seen 18 permanent deals done for a mixture of senior signings and future talents, as well as three loan deals, while nine players exited Elland Road for good and a further eight on a temporary basis.
Now, when probed about the squad’s quality in comparison to who Garry Monk had at his disposal last season, Radrizzani needed just two words to deliver his thoughts on whether the club’s business had been a success.
Responding to a Leeds fan asking whether the squad was stronger now or in 2017, he said via his personal Twitter account: “Yes definitely.”

Monk managed to guide what the Italian owner has dubbed an inferior squad to finish seventh in the Championship table last season, just five points off the play off spots.
The Whites currently sit 11th in England’s second tier, although are again just five points adrift of Bristol City sitting in sixth.
