Cellino makes an admission which could worry some Leeds fans

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has admitted that he's understanding football 'less and less'.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino told Cagliari News 24 that with every year that passes he feels he’s understanding less and less about football.

Cellino was writing in an open letter in which he also stated that he wouldn’t be returning to the Italian club after they were relegated from Serie A and into the second flight of Italian football.

Much has been made of the way Cellino has run Leeds and the way he’s treated key individuals at the club, including manager Neil Redfearn who still hasn’t been given his official marching orders at Elland Road.

“It’s all rubbish, don’t even think about it (possible return) – I thought I understood so much about football, but every year that passes I understand less and less,” said the Italian.

The main aim for Leeds looking ahead to next year remains the same; try to compete in that group of the top six Championship sides with the aim of promotion into the Premier League.

For that to happen, Cellino has to create a stable platform at the club, which everyone can buy into and use to their advantage.

He would have learnt a number of things about the club in his short spell so far and hopefully he will realise the importance of keeping all groups of supporters happy.

Pulling the trigger on Redfearn will be an unpopular decision and it will be interesting to see if he learns from any discontent which follows.
