Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is a flamboyant character, and he showed that on Saturday.
The West Yorkshire club took on Brentford away from home in the Championship. It was new manager Darko Milanic’s first game in charge of the Whites, and Cellino had travelled with the team to Griffin Park.
However, the Italian entrepreneur actually went to the home end to watch the game and was spotted with the Brentford fans.
Cellino, though, was soon escorted to the away end, where one excited Leeds fan took a picture of him.

Despite Cellino’s bravado, Leeds failed to win the contest as Milanic started his reign as the former Premier League club’s manager on a losing note.
Goals from Jota and Alan McCormack saw the Bees register a 2-0 win, leaving Leeds 13th in the Championship table with 13 points from nine matches, just three points behind sixth-placed Derby County.
