Leeds fans fume over owner’s claim about bizarre trip

Leeds fans are at a loss for words, after owner Andrea Radrizzani claimed the club are not making any money from their trip to Myanmar.

Leeds announced on Tuesday that the club will travel to Myanmar after the final game of the season for two post-season friendlies.

Fans were bemused, bewildered and just downright furious at the decision, questioning why on earth the club would think it is a good idea.

Myanmar is currently the subject of political of societal unrest, with thousands of Rohingya Muslims being forced to flee the country.

The United Nations described the situation in the country as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”, and Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan said the club “must rethink” their decision to visit a country performing state sponsored mass murder.

If all that wasn’t bad enough, owner and chairman Andrea Radrizzani tried to alleviate fans’ ethical concerns on Twitter by claiming the club will not make a penny from the trip.

This has only further incensed fans, as they are now wondering what exactly the purpose of the trip is, and if Radrizzani himself is pocketing the profits.
