Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to club chairman Massimo Cellino’s stance over Fernando Forestieri.
Earlier today, Cellino revealed on Leeds’ official website that the Whites will not be pursuing a deal to recruit Fernando Forestieri from Watford before the end of the summer transfer window next month.
The Whites were interested in recruiting the forward, but the Italian entrepreneur claimed that the 25-year-old did not have the right mentality to play for the West Yorkshire outfit.
However, Cellino stated that the former Genoa striker did not have the desire and hunger that some of the other Leeds summer signings showed before putting pen to paper.
Following the statement, Leeds fans took to Twitter to have their say on the end to the Forestieri pursuit.
Below are some of the best comments:
Oh and Forestieri? Wrong mentality? Or simply turned us down in the hope of a better move and MC is trying to save face? #lufc— Jennifer (@jenbarlufc) August 28, 2015

Right decision on Forestieri if he doesn't fancy it. We need 2 in before the window shuts hope they deliver. #lufc— Irish_Leeds (@Irish_Leeds) August 28, 2015
Should've expected it. MC says #lufc not pursuing Forestieri, feels he isn't committed to Leeds. Good decision I'd say- but MC getting flak?— Just watching (@Cellino_In) August 28, 2015
