The only bright spark in Leeds United's poor start to the season has been talk of a potential takeover.

The BBC reported last week that Italian businessman Andrea Radrizzani is in talks about a 'major investment' in the Whites.

With the club losing both of their Championship games this season so far, scoring only once, patience with current owner Massimo Cellino is fast wearing thin, with this season looking like another false dawn.

Whether Radrizzani is the right man for the job, or is representing the best people for Leeds, is yet to be established, but there is a desire among the fanbase for something to happen, to snap the club out of their malaise, and propel them back towards the Premier League.

Radrizzani was asked by a supporter last night if investing in a major club is worth the risk of a short term loss, and agreed it certainly is.

Leeds are a club with a rich history and huge fanbase, which can be a major asset to the club if they can start getting results right on the pitch.

The club may well need a fresh approach at the top, but there is nothing yet to suggest a takeover or major change is imminent, and fans will have to hope the team can get it right on the pitch first.
