LEEDS’ FUTURE IS UP IN AIR AGAIN
LEEDS United fans’ hopes of taking over the club appear to have been scuppered – for the time being at least.
Last week, Leeds Fans United stated they had reached an agreement in principle with controversial owner Massimo Cellino to purchase a majority stake in the club. But a midweek war of words appears to have ended that prospect.
In a statement, the supporter group said:“Leeds Fans Utd has just been informed by the lawyers of Massimo Cellino that he no longer wishes to sell to Leeds fans. Our insistence on him confirming his verbal offer of exclusivity in a legally binding agreement has forced transparency on his motives.”
Cellino responded: “They say a lot of fairytales. They talk too much. It is dangerous, this kind of publicity.”
While chaos reigns off the pitch and Cellino has suggested he may change his mind again with regard to the fans, Leeds made it back-to-back wins under Steve Evans with a 3-0 romp at Huddersfield yesterday.
