How will Adam Pearson feel about the latest developments at Leeds?

Several events have occurred in the short space of time since the executive director left Leeds.

Adam Pearson left his role as executive director at Leeds United in mid-September.

Just one month later, owner Massimo Cellino has already alienated Sam Byram with a public Sky Sports interview, decided to limit away tickets in protest against the Football League and TV companies, according to BBC Sport, and now sacked head coach Uwe Rosler - with Steve Evans the favourite to replace him, according to widespread reports.

Essentially, life at Leeds is back to how it was last season and the exact opposite of what it was while Pearson was at the helm for just a few short months.

Indeed, it's exactly what captain Sol Bamba praised Pearson for in an interview with the Football League Paper... just days before he left. The 50-year-old was also a big fan of Rosler and vice versa; the two of them seemed to put out a long-term vision.

For a very brief period, there was stability at Elland Road.

How must Pearson be feeling watching events at his old club now? Will he feel vindicated for pursuing other business interests? Relieved? Unsurprised?

It's unlikely we will ever know the full details of the director's Leeds departure. But we do now know exactly what Cellino had in mind when he said he will double his workload in Pearson's absence.
