LEEDS have ap­pointed Ben­ito Car­bone as a ‘spe­cial con­sul­tant to the board of di­rec­tors’ – cast­ing an­other cloud over the fu­ture of boss Brian McDer­mott.

Car­bone, 42, who ended his play­ing ca­reer in 2010, has been given the role by new Leeds owner Mas­simo Cellino.

A state­ment read: “The club are de­lighted to an­nounce that Ben­ito Car­bone has joined in a con­sul­tant po­si­tion and will deal with tech­ni­cal and foot­ball op­er­a­tions.

“Ben­ito will be in­volved with all foot­ball mat­ters, in­clud­ing both the first team and the academy.”
