Leeds United fans are clear, Victor Orta is responsible for season capitulation

Leeds United lost 3-0 for the second time in a row last night.

Leeds United were given another thumping in the Championship last night, as they lost 3-0 for the second game in a row. The Whites lost to league leaders Wolves by the same scoreline that they did versus Middlesbrough in the game previous.

Leeds’ already faint hopes of making it into the play-offs by the end of the season are, it seems, now over.

Wolves, on the other hand, are looking like heading to the Premier League. Much of their success has been due to the link with Jorge Mendes and the investment from Fosun international. After the game, it was something that had Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani fired up:

The Italian’s words did no go down well with the majority of Leeds fans. Wolves have certainly seemed to have an unfair advantage in the transfer market but that does not impact on the Leeds players who stepped out on the pitch and put in a fairly abject performance.

But in light of the comments by Radrizzani many a Leeds fan vented their frustration with the club’s sporting director Victor Orta:

Leeds fans are clearly not pleased with the recruitment under the Spaniard. A lot has been made of his continual additions to the under-23 squad and the failure of many recruits.

The likes of Mateusz Klich, Felix Wiedwald and Laurens De Bock have not impressed and they are not alone. Whilst Wolves have had more financial clout and better contacts their recruitment was perfect for the Championship.

Leeds’ newbies look out of depth at this level and fans are fed up of seeing poor performances from the club week-in and week-out.

Thomas Christiansen’s dismissal has not seemed to stop the rot at Leeds. Many Leeds fans clearly feel he was the wrong man to get the sack in January.
