Rodrigo sets the record straight

Leeds record signing Rodrigo has hit back over claims that he is ready to quit Elland Road in the Summer. The 30 year old took to Instagram last night to refute claims by Spanish outlet Fichajes, that he was upset being played out of position, as well as lack of game time. Spain's No 9 wrote...

I’m not a person to comment on nonsense stories, however in this case I want to make it clear that stories about me wanting to leave Leeds and a bad relationship with Marcelo are false.

I am very sorry that some people try to misinform our fans – my feelings are the opposite. “I am happy, focused and working hard to help my teammates to end this great season in the best possible way. I love being at Leeds United, I respect my coach and I identify with this club. “Come on Leeds.

Leeds part with £7m towards agents fee's between 2020-21

In the last calendar year, Leeds have parted with £7m towards agents fee's. The incoming transfers of Raphinha, Rodrigo, Robin Koch, Joe Gelhardt, Helder Costa & Illan Meslier was responsible for the lions share. Fees were also paid to intermediaries for new contracts for Jamie Shackleton, Ryan Edmondson, Niall Huggins, Alfie McCalmont & Pascal Struijk. Also included is an updated registration for Patrick Bamford! A total of £272,220,223 was spent by top flight clubs on agents fees. Chelsea £35m + , Man City c. £30m, Man Utd almost £30m, Liverpool £21.6m spent the most whilst West Brom, Burnley, Palace & Sheff Utd all spent less than Leeds.

Its April fool's day

What is the best trick that you have played, or that someone has played on you? Been caught out by any Leeds United fools?

I read that Sheff Utd spent far more than Leeds on agents fees. Can't find the comparison now, but it made our signings look relatively good business. Players probably need less enticement to come to Leeds!

Well said, Rodrigo!

Rubbish speculation from the media once again.
I can't believe how much mileage that story got. It never made sense. Wish there was some kind of accountability for journalists making s**t up.
