Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has apologised to his Derby County counterpart Mel Morris over the spying scandal. Derby claimed on Friday that they had removed a ‘spy’ from their training ground on the day before. It appeared the suspect was a Leeds employee and on Friday Marcelo Bielsa revealed that it indeed was a Leeds spy.
The outspoken coach showed no remorse and claimed that it’s ‘normal’ in South America. The Leeds United board have now stated that they will be having some words with Bielsa. “Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa yesterday the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on.
“Our owner Andrea Radrizzani has met with Derby County’s owner Mel Morris to formally apologise for Marcelo’s actions. We will make no further comment on this matter.” The English Football Association has indicated that they will be investigating the matter. Leeds United and Derby County faced each other on Friday, with Leeds winning the game 2-0.
