The Leeds figure spoke at the club’s Player of the Year awards ceremony and discussed the long-term plans for the development of Elland Road.
“We do want to modernise the stadium,” he said.
“There’s the ability and capacity to increase it to 50,000-plus because the top Premier League clubs, that’s what they do have.”
Leeds fans flocked to the tweet from journalist Beren Cross to show their thoughts at Marathe’s comments following the conclusion of their first season back in the English top-flight.
What exactly did these Leeds fans have to say?
“In Europe PSG is good for atmosphere but some of the viewing is restricted. Ajax is a great stadium too. We would probably be looking at three tall stands and a shorter South Stand in comparison.”
Would Leeds fill a 50,000 capacity stadium every week?
Going by the reaction of these Leeds fans it is apparent they are pleased to hear of the plans Marathe and the club have to develop Elland Road, however, it is also clear they want it to be done with Elland Road’s tradition in mind.
