Massimo Cellino: Controversial figure

Massimo Cellino says he agrees with a poster outside Elland Road which suggests he should sell Leeds United.

Leeds supporters have become increasingly unhappy with Cellino’s controversial ownership of the club, during which the Italian has been suspended once by the Football League and is currently appealing a second disqualification.

And today a poster has been put up outside the club’s stadium which reads: “Time to go Massimo.”

Time to go massimo

When asked to comment on the poster by BBC Radio Leeds’ Adam Pope, Cellino responded by text: “I agree.”

Cellino recently came under fire from supporters after a video emerged of him telling an Italian journalist that the ‘pie tax’ was introduced as a punishment for critical fans.

Reports suggest the 59-year-old is looking to sell the Whites, but wants to recoup the money he paid to buy the club from previous owners Gulf Finance House.
