A whole host of Leeds United fans have reacted positively on Twitter to Angus Kinnear’s Daniel James and general transfer comments.
Despite a poor start to the season, Leeds did have a rather successful transfer window managing to bring in three first-team players who have now all featured in the Premier League this season in Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison and Daniel James.
Are you excited to see Dan James play for Leeds?
Kinnear, Leeds’ chief executive, offered some words on the James deal in Sunday’s programme for the match against Liverpool which has left many fans happy, claiming that ‘mobile phone reception was stronger in Manchester than it was in South Wales’, referring to when Swansea City pulled the plug on James joining Leeds back in 2019.
A lot of Leeds fans are happy on Twitter with Kinnear’s comments.
What have these Leeds fans had to say?
“Fortunately the mobile phone reception was stronger in Manchester than it was in South Wales.” Love it. #LUFC“
“Can’t knock the owners one bit”
“The ambition of the ownership has been fantastic”
“A wonderful way with words at times!”
“Subtle way of addressing those who slate the ownership for not spending enough money on new players. Nice little dig at Swansea too”
“Grown ups in charge”
Despite Marcelo Bielsa claiming earlier in the window that any more business was unlikely to happen, they managed to fund a £25 million move for James on deadline day, following Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Manchester United.
Since their promotion back into the Premier League, Leeds’ owners have not been shy at splashing the cash having spent just shy of £150 million over three windows, with all the money coming during the summer months to help Bielsa bolster his squad.
