YouTuber Joe Wainman called Leeds United sporting director Victor Orta ‘the decent apple in a group of bad apples’ behind the scenes at Elland Road.
With that in mind, something must be going well behind the scenes of the club – even though there have also been examples of some high-profile mistakes, such as the failed transfer attempt to sign Bamba Dieng in the summer.
Indeed, he said: “I’m a massive, massive fan of Victor. He’s the decent apple in a group of bad apples, for me personally.”
TIF Thoughts on Victor Orta and Leeds…
And considering Leeds United majority owner Andrea Radrizzani hasn’t always seemed to make the best decisions publicly – as highlighted by his role in the ill-judged ‘welcome’ tweet to Dieng prior to his failed transfer – it’s not hard to see why Wainman may feel as though there are some ‘bad apples’ at the club.
Taking everything into account, it’s fair to say Orta has done enough to earn some respect from the fanbase, so many may well be concerned by the aforementioned Chelsea links.
For now though, at least, he is still at Leeds as they hope to impress this season in the Premier League.
