Thomas Christiansen said he’s been happy with Andrea Radrizzani so far.

Christiansen expressed how much he likes and appreciates all the work that the owner of the football club, Radrizzani, has done over the past year since he came aboard. He was quoted saying:

I have only positive things to say about Andrea – for the confidence and the possibility to bring me to Leeds with Ivan Bravo and Victor Orta who are very important.

I am very satisfied with how everything is going and how professional they are taking all the things and how they want to improve the ambition to give us all the facilities that we have to be better and to grow as a team. I hope to continue to like this.

While it’s not surprising to see Christiansen say nice things about the man who ultimately signs his checks, it is important to remember just how far Leeds have come in the past year and the tales of woe from teams such as Coventry City or Blackburn Rovers should really put things into perspective.
