Patrick Bamford has taken to Twitter to hail Andrea Radrizzani for his role in the Play For Change campaign alongside Kim Kardashian.
What’s the story?
Well, Radrizzani has been playing a crucial role in a campaign designed to help bring 130 people from Afghanistan over to the United Kingdom.
Ever since the rise of the Taliban, female footballers in Afghanistan had no place in the sport anymore, which Radrizzani wouldn’t stand for.
With his help, the Afghan Women and Girls Development Football Team have been safely flown over to the United Kingdom with their families.
It’s a fantastic initiative from the Leeds owner, who really has ‘done the club proud’ as Bamford wrote.

Well done boss 🙌🏽 making the club proud! https://t.co/eHNtiwkZGL— Patrick Bamford (@Patrick_Bamford) November 20, 2021
Bamford is spot on – the Italian is a class act.
Leeds and Andrea Radrizzani cannot stop there
Sadly, it seems the situation over in Afghanistan has started to die down in terms of media coverage, which, in our opinion, is wrong.
There are still many woman – not just female footballers – who have had their lives turned upside down by the Taliban taking control of the nation.
Of course, it’s not all down to Radrizzani to sort this out, so plenty of people need to come together to assist them.
Nevertheless, the 47-year-old has already done himself and Leeds proud.
Having someone like Radrizzani at the helm is wonderful for the Whites.
He is clearly a caring person, which bodes well for the Leeds players and staff currently employed at Thorp Arch and Elland Road.
With Radrizzani holding the reigns, Leeds are certainly in good hands.
