Andrea Radrizzani sends Twitter message to Kiko Casilla

Kiko Casilla’s departure from Leeds United was finally confirmed this week, with the Spaniard completing a return to his homeland.

The keeper has joined Elche on a season-long loan, with the possibility to make the move permanent if all goes well.

Casilla had no future under Marcelo Bielsa after being found guilty of racist insults.

Andrea Radrizzani, on the other hand, had a different opinion and decided to congratulate Casilla for his efforts.

On Tuesday evening, the Whites’ owner said the remarks on his own Twitter account, calling him a legend.

“Mucha gracias Kiko, an example of professionalism and dedication,” he said.

“Leeds will be always your home. You are a legend part of the team who made history for our club. Buena suerte en La Liga.”
