As if Leeds United’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers last night was not bad enough, Whites supporters also had to deal with the Twitter outburst of their owner Andrea Radrizzani.

There have been rumours circulating for a few days now that Leeds were one of the clubs who requested that Wolves be investigated for their relationship with Jorge Mendes and, in the wake of the game at Elland Road, Radrizzani ensured that those rumours were confirmed.

His comments were not exactly well received by the general public, but beyond that, Leeds supporters were outraged by the fact that he was focusing on Wolves as opposed to the current state of their own club.

Leeds now find themselves in the bottom half following a poor second half of the season and, with just a few months remaining until the final whistle is blown in the Championship, it seems increasingly likely that they will be playing in the second tier once again in 2018/19.

Wolves, on the other hand, are just a handful of wins away from securing promotion to the Premier League following a campaign that has seen them lead the way for months.

Many fans believe that nothing will come of the potential investigation into the work of Mendes and Wolves as a whole but, beyond that, the embarrassment that these kind of allegations are causing Leeds may be seen as the most damaging factor of all.
