The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Harte - who spent nearly a decade on the Whites' books around the turn of the Millennium - slammed the club on social media after attending one of their under-23 side's games as he felt that the team was losing its identity due to the presence of several foreign players who Harte deemed to not be good enough.
And in response, Radrizzani insisted that the way that Harte decided to express his frustrations so publicly upset him and was not acceptable as far as he was concerned.
“We treat him with kindness and we expect that when he has something to say to help the club to improve, it’s better he comes here to my office and shares his ideas rather than do this publicly," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“It’s not the right way to help the club I think. It’s not acceptable in my opinion. He needs to decide what he wants to do.”
Since Radrizzani has arrived at Elland Road, he has made a great effort to try and make the club's legends feel like they remain an important part of the foundations, and it seems unlikely that this difference of opinion with Harte will lead to anything significant.
But with Harte the agent of two of the brightest prospects currently coming through at Thorp Arch, Tyler Denton and Jack Clarke, it may still be a risk for Radrizzani to publicly criticise the retired defender for the way that he expressed his frustrations, especially as his problem with Harte came from using a public forum to vent his grievances.
Clarke, in particular, looks like he could be destined for the top in the coming years, and Radrizzani will surely not want to damage the relationship he has with Harte in case it causes problems further down the line.
