Well, the first season in charge of Leeds may not have totally gone to plan for Andrea Radrizzani, but at least his other businesses seem to be according to plan.

Eleven Sports, the TV rights company that is owed by Andrea Radrizzani, has won the rights to broadcast La Liga to the UK and Ireland over Sky Sports, who have held the rights for close to two decades.

What does this mean for Leeds fans? Perhaps not a whole lot. It’s uncertain what kind of impact this will have on the Radrizzani’s personal wealth, nor is it exactly clear what kind of impact, if any, this would have on the operation of Leeds United.
