Pearson reassures Leeds fans over Cellino's intentions

Leeds United director Adam Pearson insists Massimo Cellino has the best interests at heart for the club.

Newly appointed Leeds United director Adam Pearson has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that the club’s fans can feel reassured over the drive and ambition of Massimo Cellino.

Pearson was brought back to the club earlier this week, as Leeds have made a number of productive moves over the last few days including a new contract for Lewis Cook and the lifting of the transfer embargo over the club.

It makes the picture look a little bit nicer and Pearson has explained the sort of vision that the Italian has for the Elland Road outfit.

“Mr Cellino worked hard with the Football League to ensure that happened,” said Pearson.

“He wants to push the club forward and make sure we have a real good go at the Championship next season. We want to be pushing towards the top end.”

“I’ve come here to help the owner get the club moving forward.”

Regardless of the good news which has broken over the course of this week, many fans will point to Neil Redfearn as still being a big sticking point over their relationship with the owner.

The club and the players still don’t know who will be leading the side next season, with Redfearn’s contract set to expire at the end of next month.

He’ll either be kept on or someone new will come into the picture to take the club forward, which will mean that individual taking time to get settled and to make decisions over what the team needs moving forward.

Hopefully Cellino will get the next major decision right and the positive momentum can keep building.
