Leeds United sporting director praises result and fans via Twitter

Just one word from Leeds United's sporting director summed up his feelings about the club this weekend.

Leeds United's sporting director Nicola Salerno was clearly impressed with the club on and off the pitch at the weekend.

The Italian travelled to the DW Stadium to see Leeds record a 1-0 victory over Wigan Athletic, through yet another goal from the outstanding Alex Mowatt.

The teenager bagged his eighth of the season to help the club get all three points, in front of a raucous away support.

Salerno also posted a video to his Twitter page along with the same message, accompanying fans chanting during the victory.

The man who hired him, owner Massimo Cellino may be banned by the Football League until May, but Salerno's ongoing enthusiasm suggests his passion to see the club succeed has not waned.

Leeds have now won seven of their last 10 games under Neil Redfearn, whose contract at the club is yet to be officially extended beyond this season.

Salerno's first hand experience of how well everything at the club is going at present can only bode well for when the time comes for Redfearn's deal to be renewed, should he wield any influence at all in the matter.
