Massimo Cellino's son deletes Twitter account as Leeds saga enters new phase

Massimo Cellino 2

Massimo Cellino is separating himself - and seemingly his family - from Leeds United.

Massimo Cellino's future at Leeds United took a new twist this week when he declared he would not be returning to the club in April as previously expected.

In an open letter on the club's website, the Italian said he can't guarantee when or if he will return, but intends to fight the Football League charges against his ownership as a private individual, confirming a new claim has been made against him.

He is not the only one going off radar. Cellino's son has seemingly deleted his social media account which at times saw him communicate with fans.

Edoardo Cellino operated on Twitter under the profile @mfeee7 but as of this week it is no longer active.

Last summer Cellino jr used his account to relay potential transfer news, with Leeds blog The City Talking running a feature on his communication with fans

His daughter Elenoara deleted her Instagram account one year ago, after pictures she posted of herself were reported upon by national newspaper The Mail.

It is unclear what the motivation is behind Edoardo Cellino deleting his profile on the social network is, nor is is certain what the end game of his father is.

Massimo has a point to prove to the Football League clearly, but if unsuccessful, he has left the door open to walk away entirely by his recent non-committal statement.
