Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani responds to brilliant video on Twitter

General view of Elland Road before the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road on February 25, 2017 in Leeds, England.

The Leeds United owner was taken aback by a video sent to him on Twitter by a fan.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Millwall and Leeds United at The Den on September 16, 2017 in London, England.

Leeds United are a massive club in the United Kingdom, but it looks like one fan of the Elland Road club is recruiting supporters from as far away as the Philippines.

Elmo Fowler, a primary school teacher in Southeast Asia, filmed a video of his pupils singing 'We Love You Leeds' before Saturday's playoff trip to Derby County.

Marcelo Bielsa's side won the game 1-0 courtesy of Kemar Roofe's second-half winner, and the brother of the fan sent the video to United owner Radrizzani on Twitter.

And it's safe to say that the Italian businessman was blown away by the footage, and is set to send the teacher a letter expressing his gratitude.


It's gestures such as this which have made Radrizzani a hugely popular figure among the Whites' fanbase.

In terms of class, he is clearly a level above his predecessor Massimo Cellino, whom he bought out nearly two years ago.

Leeds are huge favourites to reach the playoff final, where they will meet either Aston Villa or West Bromwich Albion, though the Villans have a 2-1 lead in their semi-final tie. Bielsa's side resume their bid to reach the showpiece at Wembley on Wednesday when Derby visit West Yorkshire.
