Andrea Radrizzani breaks silence after Leeds lose to Derby in play-offs

Marcelo Bielsa will wait to hear Leeds' financial situation before deciding future

In what amounted to a significant upset, Derby County, with Frank Lampard in charge and former Irish worldwide Shay Given on the coaching staff, overcame Leeds United in what was a first for the Championship playoff semi-finals.

Leeds, already 1-0 up from the first leg, scored first in front of their own fans at Elland Road on Wednesday.

The result meant that the Rams won the tie 4-3 on aggregate and they will now play in the Playoff final against Aston Villa on Monday with the victor getting the right to play Premier League football next season.

Lampard praised his players for their part in the victory, but also said he had inspired them ahead of their dramatic comeback win.

Leeds United's players fear Marcelo Bielsa is ready to walk away from the club after he gave an emotional address in the aftermath of their play-off defeat to Derby County. I've heard a lot of people saying I'm crying about Spygate. "I haven't thought about that in a long time". It got worse for them as well when Stuart Dallas gave Leeds the opening goal of the second leg.

The West Yorkshire outfit won the first leg of the tie 1-0 at the Pride Park Stadium last weekend.

According to The Telegraph, Bielsa will seek assurances over the club's financial situation before he signs a contract extension, as he is anxious he may be forced to sell the side's best players in the transfer window.

"It's 1/8 for them to go through or something".

"We didn't just say we're going to go to Elland Road and do a counter-attack job", Given clarified, "we actually put a diamond in midfield and changed the two up top".

"We work harder to build a modern and successful club".

"As you can imagine, it's not convenient to talk about this right now", Bielsa said after his side's numbing defeat.

He added: "There have been mistakes and that leads to doubts about the head coach. This process, you know about it, is that if the club offers me the possibility to carry on I will listen to their proposal".

Leeds and Doncaster Rovers in 2008, the League One play-off final in which United appeared in body but not spirit, feels every bit as distant but less forgettable, a day when Wembley was decked in a sad swathe of white. There was a loss of control.
