Leeds United overjoyed to stay in Premier League after “painful season for everyone”

Leeds United have had a lot to celebrate.

Leeds United narrowly escaped relegation yesterday with a 2-1 win over Brentford.

The last day of the season is always an exciting day fuelled with nerves of last minute changes to the table- but with Leeds teetering in the relegation zone, everything rested on their last game.

Staying clear of relegation and becoming last minute winners, Jack Harrison brought what Leeds United described as “sparked utter scenes”, bringing home the all-important three points that allowed the team to return to the Premier League for the 2022/3 season.

Jesse Marsch was overjoyed with the news but acknowledged that the team wouldn’t have managed to turn things around without a full team effort.

The manager commented: “We are Leeds United, we aren’t me, we are not Kalvin Philips, we are Leeds United”.

Majority owner Andrea Radrizzani issued a statement to the fans to congratulate them on the news:

“We are naturally delighted to see the 2021/22 season come to a conclusion with Leeds United remaining in the Premier League.

“This has been a painful season for everyone, from the board to the fans in the stands, the changing room to the ticket office, it has been a battle.

“The campaign has been blighted by serious injuries to key players and having to make an unplanned managerial change was an incredibly tough decision.

“Staying in the Premier League was our objective this year and we’ve managed to obtain our top-flight status, but this is not success and improvements are needed.

“As a board we will work hard with Jesse Marsch this summer to improve the squad and find a way to deliver the kind of performances you all deserve.

“We believe that with time and a full pre-season, Jesse will be the man to take this club forward.
