Radrizzani delivers direct response to Leeds controversy as fan compares him to Cellino

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizaani has directly responded to a fan who compared him to Massimo Cellino over the controversy surrounding the club’s summer tour to Myanmar, despite foreign office warnings being in place in parts of the country.

Earlier today, Amnesty International released a statement questioning their tour and fans have talked about nothing else on Twitter all day.

One fan tagged in Radrizzani and said it was “disgraceful” that he was putting his own business interests ahead of a country “committing genocide”.

That brought in a response from another fan who said that he was “as bad as Cellino but just does it with a smiling face”.

That got the attention of Radrizzani, who responded directly to the controversy, saying that “football brings joy and has no politics”,

He went on to say that “I am happy to go in developing countries and support local football and engage with local community.”
