Leeds United round-up: Eleven Sports concern, Bielsa on 'keeper transfers and Vieira still a fan
Leeds United fans have been left fretting over the club’s financial stability. It comes after The Telegraph reported Andrea Radrizanni, the Leeds chairman, may have to pack up his Eleven Sports streaming service after just four months.
The company is said to be struggling to break even after spending big money on TV rights on, for example, La Liga and MMA.
Leeds United insist any external factors should not impact the club, despite the report.
Bielsa on keepers
Marcelo Bielsa has remained coy on any potential goalkeeper recruitment. Leeds are now without Jamal Blackman, who broke his leg last month, leaving just Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Will Huffer at the club.
Leeds have been linked with a host of names but Bielsa has told his press conference there is ‘no news’ on the subject and that if there was he ‘would comment immediately.’
Vieira still a fan
Ronaldo Vieira has insisted there are no hard feelings with Leeds United after his exit from the club in the summer.
The England under-21 star joined Sampdoria in something of a shock move as Leeds tried to raise funds for the signature of Patrick Bamford.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, he insisted he has ‘no bad feelings’ about Leeds and he remains a supporter today.
