Following their promotion to Premier League, Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has hailed the "great legacy" of Jack Charlton.
The former Republic of Ireland boss will be laid to rest next week after he passed away at the age of 85 last weekend.
"A word about Norman Hunter and Jack Charlton, two club legends we lost recently and who would have certainly celebrated this achievement with us," the Italian wrote on Leeds' official website.
"They are part of a great legacy that we will work hard to honour, as we continue to take strides forward in a new cycle for this fantastic club."
“I am so happy for everyone in the Leeds United family, we all deserve this promotion," Radrizzani assed.
"Leeds United is one of England’s greatest and most well-supported clubs with a rich history known all over the world.
"We have been out of the top-flight for 16 years and I am thrilled for the whole club and our incredible fans that we are back in the Premier League.
“I would like to congratulate our fantastic manager, Marcelo Bielsa, the entire coaching and backroom staff, and of course all of the players who have performed outstandingly throughout the season.
"Thank you to all our wonderful fans – I am so grateful for their loyal and unwavering support every season. They played a crucial role to drive us forward to promotion this year.
“Since my journey with Leeds United began in the summer of 2017, we have strived for this moment and it is a time for us all to celebrate the club returning to where we belong.
"This is truly an amazing achievement and I’m so proud to be part of this club’s success.
"But our ambition does not stop here – and we are determined to continue on this path of achievement in future seasons.
