Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has sent a message of thanks to the clubs’ supporters in the wake of the 2-2 draw against Derby County at Pride Park on Wednesday night.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side conceded a late equaliser to end their hopes of earning a first win since Boxing Day.

However the Leeds faithful were in good voice all night, and Italian businessman Radrizzani has taken to his personal Twitter account to deliver his verdict on the supporters’ role in the stalemate.

“Massive support last night thank to all Leeds supporters who travelled to Derby,” he said.

Radrizzani was among those who travelled to Derby on Wednesday night.

He would have witnessed first hand the improvements that Heckingbottom has been able to make in his first few weeks as Leeds manager, but also that the squad appears to be in an inescapable rut at the moment.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga kept up his impressive goalscoring form against the run of play in the first-half, but the Whites’ lead vanished just before the break when Andreas Weiman took advantage of poor defending by Laurens De Bock and Liam Cooper.

The introduction of Ezgjan Alioski and Samuel Saiz had a major impact as the Spanish playmaker fed in Alioski to put Leeds ahead.

However Kasey Palmer netted a stoppage time equaliser for Gary Rowett’s side, meaning Heckingbottom’s wait for a first victory in charge of United well have to wait until at least Saturday when the club faces off against Brentford.
