Andrea Radrizzani hit back at Leeds United fans’ criticism of his ownership on his Twitter account.
Leeds unveiled their new home kit for the 2023/24 season on Tuesday, with fans upbeat about the new design. The jersey came out just hours after the club announced Flamingo Land as their official sleeve partner.
When the club’s official Twitter account posted the new kit, fans in the comments showed their appreciation for the new design. Others also used the new kit to criticize the design of the previous season’s kit.

One user took the chance to criticize Andrea Radrizzani’s ownership of the club. The Italian took over the club in 2017 and was in charge when Leeds got promoted to the Premier League. Radrizzani has agreed to sell his remaining 56 per cent stake in the Yorkshire club to 49ers Enterprises.
The soon to be former owner of the club responded to the fan, saying he is the one behind the current home shirt design:
Who do you think made it ?
