PHOTO: Cellino looks on at Leeds United training session

Massimo Cellino 1

Massimo Cellino was at Leeds United's training ground yesterday to watch the players train.

Yesterday's training session for Leeds United's players was not just an important one as they had to impress their new manager, but because they had to catch the eye of the chairman, too.

Darko Milanic oversaw his first training session since being appointed as boss yesterday and he was accompanied by Massimo Cellino, as he analysed his new squad's strengths and weaknesses. 

Cellino, an outspoken owner, has ruled with an iron whip so far and there has been a huge amount of player turnover during his regime so far. 

He is known to be a very reactionary man and there could have been no room for complacency on the training ground with the Italian an interested spectator. 

Leeds have been on good form of late, picking up 10 points from the last 12 available to elevate themselves into the top-half of the Championship table, but the squad won't be resting on their laurels.

They take on Brentford this Saturday where they will be hoping to keep their momentum building, even after the managerial change which has been made this week.
