Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani spoke at the kit release at Elland Road yesterday, saying that he was targeting a top-six finish for Leeds.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Radrizzani said:

I think the play-offs are the target and if we are not able to achieve this it is not a good season for sure.

If we do more than that it will be a dream so we know what we fight for.

He also said that he’s excited and nervous after last year’s unsuccessful season.

Radrizzani hasn’t been perfect as a owner, by any means, but it still looks like he wants Leeds to do well and get promotion. This is the second year that he’s put the goal of the club as “top six,” and maybe this year, the club will hit it.
