As you’ll all be aware by now, Leeds United were all over the news today when it was announced they would be heading on a post-season trip to Myanmar. This is a place where the United Nations describe what is happening there as “ethnic cleansing”, which to say the least, is not great.
Leeds owner Radrizzani has come under fire many times since he purchased Elland Road what feels like a blue moon ago. First we had the good old badge release that got overturned within 12 hours, then followed the collapse on the pitch that has resulted in chants for Orta to go and here we have another PR disaster from a man who’s supposed to be a bit of a PR guru.
He’s had his chance to respond though on Twitter and he had this to say
Such a stupid thought! It s actually the opposite, football bring joy and has no politics. I am happy to go in developing countries and support local football and engage with local community.

It’s fair to say the whole situation is a bit of a mess. Purely on the football side too, who actually wants to see that?
