'Impossible' - What Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has said about Leicester City

Click to read the article in full.  

Leicester City have a model of “stability and sustainability” that Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani aspires to.

In the six years since their promotion from the Championship, City have established themselves as a regular in the top half of the Premier League, clinching an astonishing Premier League title in 2016 before disrupting the top six again last season.

Leeds are back in the top flight after a long absence, and while there are high hopes at Elland Road, their owner Radrizzani has ruled out an “impossible” rise into the European spots in the way City have done.

However, he is still looking at the club as a shining light.

“It’s impossible,” Radrizzani told Associated Press when asked if the Whites had European aspirations. “It would be wrong to do it because there is no foundation to do that.

“So obviously, there are teams that have done an unbelievable story like Leicester, but Leicester is an example also of stability and sustainability over time.

“But I think we need to be realistic about what our possibilities are now, and our objective is to stay in the Premier League.

City have not played Leeds since a Carabao Cup tie in 2017, and face them this season on October 31 at Elland Road, and on January 30 at the King Power Stadium.
