Cellino Gets League Approval

Last updated : 10 April 2014 By .

In making its original decision, the Board took the view that Mr Cellino's recent conviction in Sardinia was an act that 'would reasonably be considered to be dishonest' and that he was therefore subject to a disqualifying condition.

In the current absence of detailed reasons for the conviction from the Sardinian Court and having taken into account the principles of Italian law, an independent QC reached a different conclusion. On this basis, Massimo Cellino is cleared to be a director of Leeds United.
