Cellino's daughter deletes Instagram page after run-in with Leeds United fan

Leeds owner's daughter swore at a fan of the club before deleting her page altogether.

The daughter of Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has deleted her social media account after a run-in with a fan of the club.

Eleonora Cellino had posted a photo of herself in a bikini in Miami last week, only for a Leeds United supporter to leave her an angry message regarding the suspension of club assistant Steve Thompson.

Her dad is currently suspended by the Football League, with the decision taken by sporting director Nicola Salerno, angering fans who regard Thompson as having a positive impact at the club.

Cellino's daughter replied angrily to the Leeds supporter, before seemingly disappearing from Instagram altogether. The exchange was as follows:

Lukewhit20: "Karma is a bitch, and when you sack somebody for getting a team 2nd in the form league, just because you or your fave players werent involved, then that will come back to bite! Hard!"

Eleonoracellino: "Listen luke, what the f*** do you want from me? Im a fashion student, in dont work with Leeds United and am not involved with it? Why dont you f*** off and let me breath? Your attacking a 18 year old for decisions she never took nor she knew about. Karma will get back at you."

She has since deleted her account, which would have been accessible via this link.

While seemingly trivial, the whole episode boils down to the frustrations Leeds fans felt at last week's events, and the fact nobody at the club has come out and publicly addressed what is going on, barring Neil Redfearn doing his best to diplomatically handle everything as well as preparing the team for their fixtures.

Cellino's tenure is turning into an unsatisfactory spell for all, and this is just the latest instance.
