Leeds United owner uploads cheeky Twitter post and is snapped alongside Kylian Mbappe

The Leeds chief was in attendance to pick up a Fair Play award from FIFA.

Leeds United have made a solid start to their 2019/20 campaign and currently sit top of the pile in the Championship.

They have tasted defeat just once in eight games and will look to make up for losing in the play-offs last season.

Last night saw Leeds claim a surprising accolade at the FIFA Awards which took place at a ceremony in Milan.

The Whites were awarded the Fair Play mantle after allowing Aston Villa to run in an unchallenged equaliser against them last season.

Leeds had scored a goal whilst a Villa player lay injured on the turf. Boss Marcelo Bielsa was incensed that his side hadn’t kicked the ball out of play and subsequently demanded his team allow Albert Adomah to run from the kick-off and restore parity.

Quite bizarrely Pontus Jansson took exception to Bielsa’s instruction and did make an attempt to thwart Adomah in his tracks. Nonetheless, the Fair Play award has gone to Leeds.

Owner Andrea Radrizzani took to Twitter following the showpiece ceremony. He was quick to mock the ‘Dirty Leeds’ mantra that is so often thrown at Leeds from rival clubs and also posed for a photo with global superstar Kylian Mbappe and Whites captain Liam Cooper:

Naturally, Leeds fans were buzzing with this cheeky tweet and responded to their owner in earnest.

Here is a selection of Tweets from the club’s supporters in response to Radrizzani’s message:
