Leeds United supremo Andrea Radrizzani has given his thoughts on the summer ahead for the club, as per the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Radrizzani saw his side finish third and then fail to get back into the Premier League via the play-offs, of course robbing the club of the windfall that top flight football provides.
And he said at the FT’s Business in Football conference: “We’ll have to run a difficult summer in terms of the transfer market but we have a great academy.”
A small tidbit maybe, but Leeds supporters have taken it to mean that the money has dried up and that there will be no sign of improvement behind the scenes this summer.
Leeds have not spent as lavishly as the likes of Aston Villa or Derby or as shrewdly as Norwich or Sheffield United over the last couple of years – and the supporters see that continuing.
There is more than one way to get out of the second tier, but Leeds supporters do not believe their club has the answers as yet…
As good as the owners done for us it was obvious in January he hasn't got the cash to take us to the next level/premiership due to the James transfer & imo that cost us promotion
So what are we expecting next season with the same squad minus Janson/Philips or both?

Not really a surprise, we will no doubt be testing the limits of FFP after last season. We know how it goes if you roll the dice and spend big so lets just try and keep Bielsa and keep building.

Tell us something new, you would of thought we were under transfer embargo 😂. I applaud our owner for turning club around, however lack of transfer activity a worry

ER has been sold out all season so where’s that money as we weren’t the season before?! Sell Bamford and cassilla and buy Gayle! The time to invest was in January from a position of strength! Everyone else did that who was up there! They never learn

Why do we not get filthy rich owners? Sour grapes on my side. But seriously, this club is a money maker in the Prem.
