Andrea Radrizzani’s Christmas message, subtle Leeds United hint

Potential investor Andrea Radrizzani continues to tease Leeds United fans over his proposed purchase of a stake in the club.

After telling the Strait Times a deal to buy 50 per cent of the club from Massimo Cellino was in the pipeline, confirmation is still being awaited.

Yet Radrizzani has not forgotten about the Whites.

On Wednesday evening he posted a simple message onto his Instagram page, urging followers to donate to Kings College Hospital in London, and wishing a Merry Christmas.

The subtlety… two of the five staff and volunteers pictured in the photo posted by Radrizzani, were wearing blue Santa hats with Leeds United club badges.


The takeaways are that Radrizzani is in the UK, potentially waiting for a deal to be signed off, or simply now until after the festive period to get moving.

He is also keeping Leeds on the mind, and while he may be sworn to secrecy or confidentiality to prevent details becoming public and potentially scuppering any agreement, Radrizzani is keen to show the club remain a priority.

A big 2017 awaits off the field as well as on it.
