Leeds United President Andrea Radrissani said: “Given how successful Marcelo has been, this has been the hardest decision I’ll ever make during my tenure at the club.
“Under Marcelo, we had three incredible campaigns and good times returned to Eland Road. He changed the culture of the club and brought the winning mentality to all of us. This ad will be remembered by fans for a long time to come,” Rodriguez continued.
The Leeds chairman added: “However, I think I have to act with the club’s interest in mind We need a change now to protect our status in the Premier League. Recent results and performance have not met our expectations. “
Football director Victor Orda of Spain added, “Since he came to Leeds United, Marcelo has made a huge impact at the club, on a scale I have never seen before.

“The special moments we have experienced in recent years are the best in my career, but we can not hide from the recent results,” Orda concluded.
