Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has hit out at Wolves and questioned the club's link-up with super-agent Jorge Mendes.

Wolves beat Leeds 3-0 in West Yorkshire last night, with two first-half goals effectively killing the game off after 45 minutes. The comprehensive victory moved them six points clear at the top.

A subsidiary of Wolves owners Fosun owns a share in Mendes' agency, Gestifute, and several of the agent's clients are at Molineux, playing a huge part in their current position.

After the game, Radrizzani Tweeted: 'We have our own problems but we should play in a fair competition. Not legal and fair (to) let one team owned by a fund whom has shares in the biggest players agency with evident benefits (top European clubs giving players with options to buy ..why the other 23 teams can’t have same treatment? We should play all 24 with the same rules and opportunities (its enough to google it) @EFL'

'Congratulations to the best team but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams'

The Leeds owner also Retweeted a Tweet from the Yorkshire Evening Post's Phil Hay which said '"One Jorge Mendes" coming from the away end. Surely a first. #lufc'

It has been reported that several Championship clubs have raised concerns about the influence of Mendes, with Leeds one of those sides involved.

The agent represents Wolves' Head Coach Nuno Espirito Santo and a number of players at the club, including £16m record signing Ruben Neves and on-loan Atletico Madrid forward Diogo Jota, both joining in the summer.

Reports say that the issue will be one of the topics discussed at an EFL board meeting on Thursday.
