Leeds United fans placed the blame for their late-season collapse on Andrea Radrizzani’s failure to invest in the squad during the January transfer window.
The Whites were desperate for attacking reinforcements at the mid-way point of the season, but the Italian failed to cough up the funds to help Marcelo Bielsa on his quest for promotion to the Premier League.
Leeds only signed one player at the beginning of 2019 with Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla arriving at Elland Road early on in the window.
A failed move for Dan James followed and the Yorkshire club were left short-staffed heading into the second half of the season.
Lack of depth in the second half of the season has seen Leeds punished with a barrage of injuries in recent weeks, leaving Bielsa with a depleted squad to choose from.
Leeds fans on Twitter have blamed the lack of movement in January for the late-season collapse that sees the club three points behind Sheffield United with just two games to go.
Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying on Twitter…
Unbelievable, unacceptable and embarrassing that we’ve fallen apart yet again. This lot have no chance in the playoffs.
Radrizzani totally to blame for me, already concerned about next season #lufc

Radrizzani not investing in January has cost us promotion. Say what you want but that’s what’s happened

We probably aren’t rotating the squad because we have no squad to rotate. We have been very unlucky with injuries but the fact we didn’t invest even a couple of million in January will without doubt have costs us the difference between second and third. That’s all on the owner

Tried to make a silk purse out of a pigs ear, but unfortunately the stitching has come undone because it was cheap thread.

The players haven’t bottled it, it’s once again lack of investment in January once again that’s cost us. Not building on success. The ownership won’t back the club but expect fans to pay fifty quid for a membership for the privilege to watch the team. Baffles me #lufc
