Danny Mills was a huge hit in his time at Leeds United, going on to play for Manchester City, but since his retirement the former right back has taken up a role as a pundit, usually giving Leeds United the support that many others don’t and having the Whites fans backs in the process.

When Leeds lost 2-1 to Millwall at The Denn last Saturday, Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani took to Twitter to air his frustrations regarding refereeing decisions that have gone against his club recently, with Leeds seeing a penalty and a red card given against defender Gaetano Berardi in just the fourteenth minute, but on closer inspection, there was no contact between him and Millwall striker Tom Bradshaw.

The red card was later rescinded but no further action was taken against the Millwall player, giving the Leeds fans further reason to be aggrieved.

The Tweet by Radrizzani was taken well by the fans, but Danny Mills was not a fan of the Italian being so open and public about his grievances, here is what he told Football Insider regarding the matter…

“It’s not a great idea, is it? In this day and age, it’s hard when people want to hear from the chairman but some of the best chairman and best owners are the ones who just stay silent.

“Let the manager, let the coach, let the team do the talking. Maybe it’s just a little bit of frustration from Radrizzani, of course, he wants to do well, he wants his team to do well.

“Saying things on Twitter about officials and teams and players is never a good idea.”

The Leeds United fans have an affinity with both men, but it’s difficult not to agree with Mills on this matter, the role of a chairman, no matter how frustrating, is to do the stuff behind the scenes.
