Looks like someone hasn’t been listening.
Leeds United’s owner Andrea Radrizzani came under a lot of criticism last week from Danny Mills for voicing his views on Gaetano Berardi’s red card on Twitter, saying that it would be better if members of the board stayed off Twitter.
Well, he hasn’t heeded that warning, as Radrizzani waded in on the ever so precious debate of whether or not Eddie Nketiah should be getting more game time.
This all comes in the wake of the Arsenal loanee saying that he is unhappy about his lack of minutes.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, he seemed to take issue with the fact that people were trying to make an issue out of something that isn’t really a big deal to him.
It s time the news should report the correct words and not translate in something else. Twice already these week! So much interest in making news out of leeds . Let s stay focus and support the lads and the manager. We have a mission to accomplish and enjoy our centenary #MOT https://t.co/JWGno4X72j

Granted some of it could have been lost in translation, but it just goes back to Mills’ point about an owner getting involved with things on social media.
Whether or not he did so with good intentions, it gave the fans an opportunity to just add more fuel to the fire and pile the pressure onto the owner to convince him to make changes, despite the fact he doesn’t pick the team.
Andrea, Bamford is completely useless. He’s going to cost you tens of millions of £. Let that sink in.

He’ll be getting Bristol to the playoffs after January while we miss out again.

Eddie needs to start – he is clinical

Although some of them used it to attack the owner directly for his perceived misunderstanding of Nketiah’s words.
No you’re wrong
Those were his exact words and he has every right to be annoyed
He has worked hard, is scoring for fun, yet hasn’t had a proper chance in the team, even when the goals have started to dry up and we are crying out for a goal scoring striker like him

Apart from those are his words Andrea. The video clearly shows his unhappiness with his role, he believes he deserves a fair chance and he ain’t getting it.

You’ve come across a right mug this week. These are Eddies own words. You have one of the brightest natural young finishers on the bench. You need to tell your overpaid manager to start playing him otherwise you ain’t getting this team promoted.

But he’s completely right and these are Eddies words not Sky. He needs to start regardless or he’s going back, he’s one of the most in form strikers about at the moment so to not start him when we are struggling for goals would be criminal.
