Leeds sporting director sends angry tweet about the club's treatment

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United's sporting director suggested he feels the club are getting the raw end of decisions.

Leeds United sporting director Nicola Salerno appears fed up with decisions going against his club.

He sent a message on Twitter on Wednesday of club defender Giuseppe Bellusci making a tackle outside the box against Bournemouth - one which saw a penalty awarded against him.

Salerno's message wrote simply 'enough injustice!', and it's fair to consider he is not just discussing the penalty decision alone.

On the pitch Leeds have conceded more penalties than any other Championship side this season, but off it the club will feel they have plenty of reason to be upset.

Owner Massimo Cellino lost an appeal this week defending his role at the club, and he is now required to resign from the board.

The Football League declared him as failing their fit and proper persons procedures, due to an old tax conviction in Italy over a yacht, but he can return in April when his conviction is spent.

Leeds staff clearly feel everything is against them right now, so managing to get a crucial win this week, their first in eight games, could not have come at a better time.
