Leeds owner Radrizzani makes players promotion promise

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has promised to take his players to Las Vegas next summer if they can steer the club back into the Premier League.

It has been a long time out of the English football’s top flight for Leeds United, who despite being one of the countries biggest clubs with three league titles to their name, have now spent almost 15 years in the football league following their relegation from the Premier League in 2004.

The West Yorkshire side have since slumped from crisis to crisis, with current manager Marcelo Bielsa being the 21st man to take the reins at Elland Road in that time.

However, they finally look to be on an upward curve under the Argentines management, with the Whites currently sitting in third in the Championship, three points behind current leaders Norwich City.

Their best finish since their relegation was a fifth-placed finish back in 2005/6, before being relegated to League One the following season, and current owner Andrea Radrizzani has given the players a big incentive to get the club back to the big time.

When asked in an interview with Leaders in Sport ‘how will you celebrate promotion to the Premier League?’, the Italian said: “I’ll take the players to Vegas.”
