Leeds United might not always be every neutral fan’s biggest cup of tea, but this season they are coming on strong and look on course to challenge for a playoff spot in the Championship.
Under new ownership and the leadership of Andrea Radrizzani, the club appear to be coming out of the shadows and back to where many believe they belong.
While a football man at heart and his job being to get Leeds back to the Premier League, the Leeds owner has this weekend been showing his heart and good natured side taking the time out to show his support for a key issue in men’s sport these days, testicular cancer, taking to social media following a nomination from Leeds defender Liam Cooper to pose with a pair of baubles to raise awareness.
Thanks @LiamCooper__ for the nomination and even more for the 3 points today @lufc I am happy to support testicular cancer research and awareness and nominate @T9Christiansen @PJansson5 and @eunan10 #merrychristmas see you at ER next week #family#pride#graft pic.twitter.com/S2pp4lg8kO

Despite not being a football related story so to speak, the actions from Radrizzani are a key message of support towards finding a cure for the disease and raising awareness, and the move will earn the Italian plenty of respect from across the footballing world.
Leeds and Radrizzani will be hoping more clubs follow suit and use their social media platforms to raise awareness of what is a crushing illness for many people involved in footbal, and out of the game.
