Leeds fans have come to expect an outburst or two from the owner every now and again. And while Andrea Radrizzani isn’t as, ahem, outspoken as some of the previous owners, he can get pretty riled up about certain things.
And apparently some little kids getting kicked out of Ashton Gate for wearing the wrong socks is one of the things that will get him upset.
This is unacceptable and we will invite the family at Elland Road as guests. what can you expect from a club whom request points deductions for no reasons and didn’t accept our documentary crew to access at the ground and follow our team. Focus on Reading now #mot https://t.co/ajOZaVDYZ6— Andrea Radrizzani (@andrearadri) March 10, 2019
So yeah, that’s the club’s owner more-or-less calling out the Bristol City owner, Stephen Lansdown, for his club being a jerk towards the camera crew and a family that had traveled and purchased tickets to see Leeds take on Bristol City at Ashton Gate. The little kids had Leeds socks on, which was apparently enough for the officials at the ground to toss the whole family out.
Radrizzani is still upset about Lansdown calling for Leeds to get a points deduction over Spygate, which makes sense as their was no actual rule that Leeds broke, but hey, I guess Lansdown is just bitter that they can’t beat Leeds, right?
Anyway, good for Radrizzani for sticking up for Leeds fans and trying to make it right by inviting the family to watch Leeds at Elland Road.
