In general, Andrea Radrizzani’s arrival at Leeds United has been greeted with positivity.

The Italian owner had owned 50% of since January, but a deal to buy the remaining 50% was agreed earlier last week, and Radrizzani is now in full control at the club.

Leeds United fans were excited to see the back of Massimo Cellino, and are starting to look ahead forward with optimism to what the future might hold.

But one man who is not particularly optimistic about what the future holds at Leeds United is Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony.

During a live Periscope session yesterday that was broadcast live on his Facebook, MacAnthony had some worrying words for Leeds United supporters.

He said: “The guy who has just bought Leeds should have given Garry Monk a three year deal.”

“Obviously he had a year left and there was a commitment issue from both sides.”

“It’s a crying shame, as I thought Leeds had a great chance to go up automatically and that’s a big setback.”

MacAnthony has been chairman at Peterborough United since 2006, and is often praised for his interaction with football fans on his Twitter page.

And he is concerned that Leeds United could be soon to return to their old ways.

He said: “I don’t know if this guy is going to go back to that route of foreign managers coming in, like what happened before. And then you’re back to square one.”
