Photo: Massimo Cellino celebrates Luke Murphy's goal for Leeds United

Massimo Cellino 1

Leeds owner celebrated Luke Murphy's goal like he had scored it.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino enjoyed Luke Murphy' superb goal against Bournemouth.

ITV's twitter feed posted a photo of the controversial Italian cheering at Elland Road, after Murphy had put the Yorkshire side 1-0 up.

The goal was Murphy's second goal in as many games since a recall to the side, and was a superb curler from the edge of the box.

Cellino has had a complicated week, losing his appeal to the Football League banning him from owning the club due to a previous tax conviction in Italy.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported Cellino's declaration he will return to the club in April when that offence is considered spent, but he is required to resign from his post this week.

Leeds have not won a game since the owner was initially banned late last season, and had sunk in the Championship table to just above the relegation zone, while Bournemouth came into the contest at the top of the league.
