Andrea Radrizzani, the owner of Leeds United, has expressed his delight with the signing of Junior Firpo.

On Monday, the Spaniard signed with the Whites, becoming the club’s third summer acquisition.

“Look, we’ve been waiting for long,” the Italian told the club’s official site.

“Every week, I was expecting news from Junior’s agent and Victor. And finally, during the weekend, I got the feedback that he liked our proposal and he liked to join us, so we’re very happy and I think we put it out there an important element to continue to grow our club in what we deserve to be, and we’ll continue to grow, I’m sure about that.

“And as well for him, for Firpo, it is a fantastic opportunity for Junior to play with Marcelo because as you know he is a demanding coach, and also he will transform his career, I’m pretty sure about that.”

Raphinha set for new squad number

For the first time in four years, Ezgjan Alioski’s departure from Leeds United has opened up one of football’s most storied shirt numbers.

In both local and international football, the number 10 is a legendary number. While Alioski used it down the left wing at Elland Road, the award is usually given to a team’s top player, talisman, creator, or goalscorer.

Before Alioski took it on, the jersey had a chequered recent past, as it had frequently changed hands after Luciano Becchio’s remarkable service ended.

Raphinha, the discovery of 2020/21, appears to be the man to take it on next season, according to United’s latest pre-season training video.
