'Ridiculous' Radrizzani told to 'get real' after Leeds reveal - Mills

Andrea Radrizzani needs to get real – Leeds United cannot break into the Premier League top six next season.

That is the view of ex-England and Whites defender Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider as the Leeds owner revealed his expectations for the club.

As quoted by the Mirror, Radrizzani insisted they are targeting a top-six finish next season, if they manage to stay up in this campaign.

The Yorkshire giants have won just two of their opening 10 Premier League games and currently sit in 17th, just above the relegation zone.

Asked whether Leeds can target a top-six breakthrough next term, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “No, that’s not realistic.

“Arsenal are going to get stronger, Tottenham are going to get stronger. Man City, Liverpool Man United and Chelsea are going to be there. West Ham are great. Leicester City are going to be heading that way.

“In what point do you think in your third season you’ll be able to break into the top six? You’re currently just above the relegation zone.

“In an ideal world, we’d all be loving to up there and challenging but you have to a degree a realism.

“Consolidate this season and then start to build. Last season, Leeds outperformed expectations by a ridiculous amount, we all know that.

“This season has to be a consolidation season, just get things right.”

Leeds last finished in the Premier League top six in the 2000-01 campaign.

The Whites finished fourth and made it to the Champions League semi-final during the same season.
