You can’t go two minutes at the moment without another Andrea Radrizzani interview popping up. If you thought Cellino leaving was the end of all this funny business, you were sadly mistaken.
"We gave the players everything possible, but we don't get back their commitment, passion or spirit." 😡

Yes, maybe there are better ways of expressing these feelings behind closed doors. However after Andrea’s outburst on Twitter against Wolves, it’s nice to hear that he realises how bad Leeds have been, not just moaning about other teams. The players may well be annoyed about Radrizzani’s comments, I don’t think they have any right to be though. On the whole, the commitment has been well below par. Just take a look at how many games we’ve had over the last few months where we haven’t started playing till we’ve gone behind, it’s a joke.
Heckingbottom has been here a while now and not much has improved, proving further that the players let Thomas Christiansen down and that they have a lot to answer for. They were rewarded, wrongly in my opinion, long contracts after starting the season brightly. Unfortunately that reward wasn’t returned to Leeds, with quite simply a shocking level of performance since Christmas.
The biggest mistake Radrizzani has made is giving out those contracts when they weren’t necessary. We’re all aware that Cooper, O’Kane etc can put in the odd good performance but it’s usually followed up with let down after let down. They both received four year extensions. Laurens De Bock, who already looks out of his depth, is under contract until 2022. It’s going to be an extremely tough task to get some of these players out of the door this summer, we could end up with a massive squad next season.
