Looking like Rads is putting in place the people (including the 49'rs) who can take us to the next level . If I might add it looks very impressive

Leeds have announced the addition of three new members to the club's board of directors.

Peter Lowy, Massimo Marinelli and Sandro Mencucci will be part of a new six-man board under chairman Andrea Radrizzani, while Andre Tegner has left his role as director.

"Leeds United has today revealed changes to its board of directors as the club looks ahead to a bright future, " a club statement said.

"Massimo, Sandro and Peter join Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani, vice-chairman Paraag Marathe and chief executive officer Angus Kinnear, to complete the board of directors. "

Australian Lowy, a lifelong Leeds fan, is currently the principle of the Lowy Family Group private investment business and was formerly CEO of the Westfield Group.

Marinelli is chief executive of Radrizzani's global investment company Aser Ventures and Mencucci spent 17 years as CEO of Serie A club Fiorentina.

Leeds added: "Andre Tegner departs, having joined as a director alongside Andrea in January 2017. He has been a well-respected advisor to Andrea and leaves with the thanks and well wishes of everyone at Leeds United. "

The club will complete their first season back in the Premier League after a 16-year absence on Sunday in their final game against West Brom at Elland Road.

Head coach Marcelo Bielsa's side are guaranteed a top-10 finish having lost only one of their last 10 matches.

That line up of those 3 new Leeds United directors reeks of success :for instance Peter Lowy and the Lowy family group current net worth is over £8 billion!

And definitely not forgetting Leeds Vice Chairman Paraag Marathe's huge success on and off the field with the SF49ers!

I think I should amend that to ' oozes success'

Sounds like an experienced line up. Providing they have the best interests of the club at heart I wish them every success.

Exciting times eh?

1970 One word. Powerhouse. That's what we're developing now. If we make the right signings in the summer coupled with a Bub extension I can see us rising to 5th place next season.

Intrigued by Lowy, a multi billionaire Leeds fan joining the board. Wondering what his agenda is? Personally if I was a multi billionaire I would certainly sling a few million into transfers without looking for a return, but maybe that's heart over head and why I'm not a multi billionaire.
