Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has suggested on Twitter that he plans to get the club back in the Champions League in three years’ time.
Radrizzani made the claim on Twitter – probably jokingly – in response to a Leeds fan urging the Italian chairman to get the team back in Europe’s premier club competition in two years’ time.
We require a Leeds shirt on that bus in 2 years time Andrea

Back in the Champions League?
Leeds have not featured in the Premier League since 2004, but before they went down from the top flight of English football, they tasted success in the Champions League.
The West Yorkshire outfit finished third in the Championship last season and failed to clinch promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs.
This campaign, Leeds are aiming to finish in the top two of the Championship table and win automatic promotion to the Premier League.
It is quite a bold ambition to get back in the Champions League in three years’ time, but Wolverhampton Wanderers have ended up in the Europa League just a year after getting promoted to the Premier League, so anything is possible once the Whites are back in the top flight of English football.
