Cellino Statement

Last updated : 02 November 2015 By .

Massimo Cellino has confirmed his intention to attend no further Leeds United fixtures.

Cellino said on the official Leeds United website: “It pains me to make this decision as I have put my heart and soul into this club. But what I was subjected to at the Blackburn game left me feeling like I had no other option but to take a step away. After the time, effort and emotion I have given to the club to try and enable us to move forward, it hurt me a lot to hear the fans singing what they did on Thursday night. The fans made it clear they believe I am no longer the best person for this job, and for the first time I am starting to think that they may be correct.”
