Danny Mills describes Leeds United under Massimo Cellino as chaos

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has come under severe criticism in recent weeks.

Speaking to talkSPORT, former Leeds defender Danny Mills has summed up Massimo Cellino’s running of the Whites in one word - chaos.

He said: “It’s just chaos at Leeds, it really is. You’ve got the owner fighting charges to prove he’s fit and proper. It’s just a crying shame.”

Mills’ comments may be harsh, but it is hard to disagree with the former defender’s words on Leeds and Cellino.

The Italian owner sacked Uwe Rosler earlier this week, hiring Steve Evans as his seventh manager in 20 months in charge at Elland Road, before being placed under investigation as to whether he is fit and proper enough to pass the Football League ownership tests.

The circus at Elland Road appears to be never ending, and chaos is the only word that can truly describe the running of Leeds since Cellino first came to the club in the 2014.

There were the troubles concerning the firing of Brian McDermott before Cellino had even taken full control of Leeds, before his sacking at the end if the 2013/14 campaign.

Dave Hockaday was appointed with no experience of professional management outside the Conference, before the Neil Redfearn, Darko Milanic, Redfearn cycle from September until the end of the season.

Rosler took charge over the summer, and he lasted 12 games before he was sacked by Cellino, winning just two games in that time, and now Evans will be hoping to see his Leeds side do better than all the previous men in his job.

If results stay as poor as they have been, it would come as no surprise to see Cellino continue the chaos by getting rid of Evans in a few months time.
