Andrea Radrizzani appears to have made his frustration clear on Twitter after Leeds United conceded an early penalty during their 2-1 defeat to Fulham.
Leeds have suffered their first defeat since early October with Scott Parker’s men edging their meeting at Craven Cottage.
And it was the home side who broke the deadlock in the early stages with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring from the penalty spot. The decision to award the Cottagers a spot-kick however, seemed incredibly controversial.
Ben White certainly put his hands on Bobby Reid inside the six-yard box. But there appeared to be very little contact between the two before the Fulham forward went to ground.
Nevertheless, the referee felt that there was enough there to give the penalty.
Unsurprisingly, plenty of Leeds fans were not at all happy about the decision. And it appears that Radrizzani completely agrees with those disgruntled supporters.
The Italian took to social media to react to a fan’s comment about the decision. It seems more likely than likely that the applause was a sarcastic assessment of the referee’s decision.

It is going to be tough for Leeds to take. At best, it was soft. And you could understand why some fans may not be entirely happy with White raising his arms.
But it does look to be an extremely poor decision. So it is probably not surprising that Radrizzani felt compelled to seemingly express his frustration on social media.
