Despite trailing for most of the second half, Leeds United showed plenty of grit to claim a point against Brentford on Saturday. After seeing Brentford go up via a controversial penalty decision, Leeds salvaged a point in the end as a towering Pontus Jansson rose high to head in the equalizer at Elland Road.
The new-found fighting spirit within the club seems to have made a big impression on the fans with a recent study ranking the Peacocks third in average attendance in second divisions across Europe. And judging by the scenes in the executive box on Saturday, the gritty display seems to have got the owners pumped up as well.
Andrea Radrizzani seems to hold a great deal of affection for the Peacocks judging by his reaction to the equalizer against Brentford. You don’t have to be a professional lip reader to make out what the Italian businessman is saying after nearly breaking his glasses during the celebrations but it’s unclear as to who the rant was aimed at.
Perhaps at the referee? Check out the clip below:
Who is Radz saying fuck off to as he puts his glasses back on, the ref? https://t.co/XNiF2rdkjE
