Andrea Radrizzani seems to be coming out of his shell in the media at the moment, a remarkable statement about the players lack of passion, commitment and spirit today follows an interview yesterday in which he has said he now wants to copy the model of Wolves, less than a week after saying what they did was unfair.

Last Wednesday night in the heat of a thumping at the hands of league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers Andrea Radrizzani decided to tweet that it was unfair what they had done, the model of Mendes bringing in players for the club whilst working as a consultant. He went on to say it wasn’t fair and that the Football Association need to act against the club as nobody else could compete. Less than a week later he is debating whether to do it himself, the well connected Italian certainly knows plenty of Sports Agencies who could probably help out with this but it seems he wants confirmation from the governing bodies that this is indeed legal before he considers the move.

He told Dan Roan of the BBC, “I want to understand the rules so I can act like them”

“If it’s possible I would do the same as it’s been proven to be successful for the team. If not I will do as I did in the past, which I’m happy with too.”

“It’s an opportunity for me to clarify the rules because I want to build a successful team on the pitch like Wolverhampton.”

“To do it I might need to have five or six players on loan from an important agent or important clubs in Europe. I need to understand if it’s practical as I would like to do the same.”

He has written to the Premier League to “make sure everything is in line with both leagues.”

“I might not even need an agent because I have good relations with many football teams in Europe personally. I want to understand the rules and if possible use them and the leverage of agents in circumstances like that.”


About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
