Some Leeds United fans are not happy with the new chairman, and are directly blaming him for Monk’s resignation.
Thought it even before Monk resigned, not a big fan of this chairman. Should have given Monk whatever he wanted after last year #lufc

The future looked so bright for Leeds United fans after Massimo Cellino sold his stake in the club to Andrea Radrizzani, but now Leeds United fans are left wondering what might have been…
That'll teach me. Getting all optimistic. Old enough to know better. #lufc

You’re going to get nowhere if you keep taking one step forward followed by two steps back…
One step forward and two steps back every single time. We never learn #lufc
