United hold­ing back econ­omy

Yorkshire Post - Business - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

LEEDS’ ECO­NOMIC fu­ture is be­ing held back by its strug­gling foot­ball team, ac­cord­ing to Town Cen­tre Se­cu­ri­ties’ chief ex­ec­u­tive Ed­ward Ziff.

Mr Ziff said Leeds was miss­ing out on the eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties that a suc­cess­ful team would bring, which put the city at a dis­ad­van­tage com­pared to places like Manch­ester.

“It’s a tragedy be­cause it’s a great brand and we are strug­gling,” he said.
