LUST chairman explains how Leeds fans can show their disgust at Cellino

The chairman of the supporters' trust has urged Leeds fans to act at the Huddersfield Town game on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds United Supporters' Trust chairman Michael Green has urged fans to show their 'disgust' at owner Massimo Cellino when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Leeds travel to Huddersfield for the Championship's early kick-off on Saturday and Green wants supporters to make their feelings towards Cellino clear.

Indeed, the Italian has gone back on his vow to sell the Whites to Leeds Fans United, a supporter group headed by Dylan Thwaites that offered to prise the club away from its current owner.

Green is quoted as saying by the YEP: "The Trust is shocked but not wholly surprised by this development.

"Now that Cellino has shown himself to be insincere, entirely consistent with his history since arriving at Elland Road, it is in the club’s and the support’s interest he departs, ban or no ban, at the earliest juncture and leaves Leeds United to be run by someone with integrity.

"We call on all fans attending the Huddersfield game on Saturday, ironically live on Sky, to show our disgust at this behaviour."

Leeds fans actually did as Green is suggesting during the 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road. Cellino was present and the United faithful chanted against him while the nation watched (the match was the only big game on that night).

That prompted the Leeds owner to vow not to return to Elland Road for the rest of the season.

Is it a coincidence that Leeds lost one game and Cellino vowed to sell, before withdrawing his promise after one win? His long-term decisions appear to be based on even shorter time-spans right now.

However, the Italian does seem to still want to sell - just not to the fan group he vowed he would deal with.
