Leeds United owner and chairman Andrea Radrizzani has posted a strong message on social networking site Twitter after the Whites suffered a 1-0 defeat against Reading in the Championship on Saturday.

After a bright start to the season, Leeds find themselves in the middle of a bad patch, with Thomas Christiansen’s side having lost their last three Championship games.

Radrizzani has said that it is a “difficult time” and has shared his support to the team and the staff members at the club. He has urged the team to learn from mistakes and keep working hard.

 

Leeds enjoyed a lion-share of possession during the game (56%) and attempted 15 shots, according to BBC Sport. Christiansen felt that his side at least deserved a point, but the players are themselves to blame as they couldn’t take their chances.

Leeds had a golden chance of salvaging a point, but Reading goalkeeper Vito Mannone saved an injury time penalty from Pablo Hernandez.
