Salerno declares love for club he 'worked' for, confused Leeds fans respond

The Leeds sporting director caused confusion on social media on Sunday night.

Nicola Salerno caused a stir - and a lot of confusion - on Twitter on Sunday night after declaring his love for the club he 'worked' for on social media.

The Leeds United sporting director has been away recently and speculation suggested he may have left the club.

It was Salerno who suspended assistant manager Steve Thompson earlier this season and the director's role at Elland Road has been shrouded in mystery since.

When he took to Twitter to say 'for ever love Leeds,' then, the Italian was greeted with criticism and plenty of negativity.

His next move was somewhat of a riddle...

Indeed, in response, Salerno says he loves a team he 'worked' for. Was that a sign of past tense or simply an example of bad typing/English?

Leeds fans couldn't tell on Twitter and either hit back at the director or questioned exactly what he meant.

Would it even be a surprise if Salerno had done so on purpose to generate intrigue and interest?

Here's how many supporters of the Yorkshire side reacted to the Italian's declaration of 'love' on Twitter. What next in the Salerno saga?
