‘It just causes trouble’ – Cellino on latest Leeds rumours

The Leeds United owner has been speaking following the latest claims regarding the club.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has been speaking about the possibility of selling the club following reports claiming Formula One company Red Bull are interested in taking control of the Championship side.

In an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post the Italian moved swiftly and emphatically to dismiss the reports, saying, “I’m not selling Leeds United. These stories are 100 per cent not true.”

Cellino has come under fire in recent times for the way a number of managers have been hired and fired.

Most recently, Neil Redfearn returned to the dugout following the dismissal of Darko Milanic, who failed to oversee a single win during his time in charge.

The report claims Red Bull want to take full control of Leeds for a fee in the region of £55million, but Cellino has no intention of selling the Whites and looks like being there for a while yet.

Speaking of the stories the Leeds supremo added, “I don’t know where they came from but they’re disrespectful to me and the supporters.

“They’re disrespectful to the work I’m doing here. It just causes trouble.”

Leeds are currently 19th in the Championship having lost 3-1 to Cardiff City on Saturday, but if the club can get back to winning ways as they did during Redfearn’s temporary stewardship they could swiftly climb up the table once more.
