Andrea Radrizzani has revealed that he wants to make Leeds one of the “top eight clubs in England” again.
The 42-year-old Italian businessman took full control of the Yorkshire giants on Tuesday after purchasing the rest of the club from Massimo Cellino following his 50 per cent investment in January.
He is already looking to make progress with the club and on Wednesday it was reported that he would activate the 12-month clause in manager Garry Monk’s contract.
Radrizzani has taken over Leeds with the team having just achieved a seventh placed finish in the Championship and he has now outlined his major ambitions with Adam Pope quoting the businessman on his personal Twitter account as to saying he wants to make the club one of England’s top teams.
AR says my goal: "is to be one of the top 8 clubs in England. This will take time and hard work." #lufc

Leeds have a very strong history which has seen them regularly feature in the English top-flight’s top eight and as recently as 2002 they finished in fifth place in the Premier League.
However, since then it has been a struggle for the club and they even dropped down to England’s third tier for three years between 2007 and 2010.
Fans will now be hoping that Radrizzani can be the man to return the club to past glories and they will be absolutely delighted by the Italian’s huge ambitions.
