LUFC Bates - Vayrynen a complete waste of money

LUFC Bates - Vayrynen a complete waste of money

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates labelled the signing of Mika Vayrynen a complete waste of money after they released him from his contract earlier this week.

The experienced Finland international midfielder signed for Leeds on a one-year deal in September after a successful trial spell with the club but he failed to earn a regular place in the Leeds side.

Vayrynen made just three starts and twelve appearances in total during his stay at Elland Road and Bates was critical of the signing made by previous boss Simon Grayson.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "I don`t know why we signed him. A nice guy but a complete waste of money.

He has made two starts and cost us £500, 000 in fees and salary. I just do not know why we signed him. I am sorry for him but I feel even sorrier for us. It is better that he goes and seeks the rest of his career somewhere else."


Vayrynen played his last game for Leeds when he made a rare start in the FA Cup tie with Arsenal in January.
