Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has urged the club's fans not to celebrate publicly if the Whites secures promotion.

Marcelo Bielsa has the Yorkshire outfit on the cusp of the top flight following a 16 year absence of the Premier League.

Leeds require four points from their remaining three games which would send their adoring fan base into raptures.

Recently Liverpool won a first league title in 30 years which bought about huge public celebrations in and around Anfield.

And with the country still easing its way out of lockdown there were fears over a spike in coronavirus cases.

England has seen 45,000 deaths as a result of Covid-19 and the current R-rate is 0.7-0.9 nationally.

And Radrizzani has been keen to remind fans that the fight against coronavirus is not over.

He wrote in the Yorkshire Evening Post : "The love you have shown the club, the players, my family and I and all the staff who work at Thorp Arch and Elland Road has been nothing short of amazing.

"The last four months have been incredibly difficult for everyone around the world, but I believe the way our communities have pulled together has been amazing – especially here in Yorkshire where huge progress has been made due to our values and collective spirit.

"Thanks to the tremendous work of healthcare teams and key workers, and the sacrifices we have all made, the situation has improved.

"However, my message to you all is that the fight against Covid-19 is not yet over and we must continue to be sensible. I know many of you are desperate to show our boys support during this important week – but the health and well-being of our loved ones in our community must be our top priority.

"I have always felt that football means little without the presence of fans, and now I know that for sure. However, it is vitally important we stay safe and keep those around us safe too by staying at home."
