CELLINO: I WILL BIDE MY TIME

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

WHILE the ru­mour mill churns out sto­ries of man­ager Steve Evans’ im­pend­ing sack­ing, Leeds United chief Mas­simo Cellino in­sists he won’t make changes un­til the end of the sea­son.

Leeds headed into the in­ter­na­tional break on the back of a 4-1 home de­feat by Hud­der­s­field Town, with the visi­tors bang­ing in three goals in nine sec­ond-half min­utes at El­land Road.

That de­feat saw Leeds boss Evans’ fu­ture once again come into ques­tion, with fans aware that Cellino is not afraid to hire and fire.

The Ital­ian has sacked Brian McDer­mott, Dave Hock­a­day, Darko Mi­lanic, Neil Red­fearn and Uwe Rosler since ar­riv­ing at El­land Road in July 2014.

Ital­ian World Cup-win­ning cap­tain Fabio Can­navaro is the lat­est to be linked to the Leeds job hav­ing re­cently left a po­si­tion as boss of Al-Nassr in Saudi Ara­bia.

But Cellino in­sisted:“I’m a very sad man with the re­sults this sea­son but some­times I’m not happy with my wife and I don’t di­vorce her.

“I won’t make any changes till the end of the sea­son. Then I will look at how the whole sea­son went.”
