Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino showed his softer side last weekend before the game against Huddersfield.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino showed his soft side last weekend before the game against Huddersfield Town.

The Italian has been branded many things since he took control of the club, but he took time before the match to put smiles on the faces of mascots with high fives before the match got under way.

Cellino’s flamboyant style has sometimes been criticised with calls for a calm, quiet and more composed approach to his position as head of one of the biggest clubs in England football.

Leeds are facing a huge season as they look to get back into the Premier League and their owner has made a big call in appointing Darko Milanic as the club’s new permanent head coach.

Here’s to hoping that it’s a case of smiles all round after the game and the next time the Italian is in the tunnel before the game.

Take a look at the Italian’s gesture below.
