Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci has his say on Massimo Cellino and ownership issues

Massimo Cellino 1

The Italian just hopes for the best for all parties involved.

It has recently become apparent that Leeds United's controversial owner Massimo Cellino is all set to sell the club after finally realising he is not wanted by the majority of Leeds fans.

It all came to a head in the recent loss at Elland Road against Blackburn Rovers, just sfter he had once again been served with a disqualification by the Football League.

Since then it has become clear that the Leeds Fans United group will not be buying the club and the current favourite appears to be local businessman Steve Parkin.

Of course whilst this has rumbled on off the field Leeds have got back on their feet on it. Two wins in the league on the bounce they are looking improved under Steve Evans of late and one man who has certainly enjoyed life under the Scot is Mirco Antenucci.

The Italian, one of Massimo Cellino's signing last summer, is certainly in the thoughts of Evans more than they were with Uwe Rosler.

This week he has been talking to the media in Italy about his time at Leeds and the future - including the situation regarding the Leeds United ownership.

The 31-year-old told Calcio Mercato:

"I do not know honestly.

"I just hope the best for the club, as well as I hope for Cellino and all the fans of Leeds."

Antenucci is clearly focusing on nothing but the pitch - it is the philosophy that Evans seems to be living by. It seems to be working for Leeds and Antenucci and if the players can continue to block out the white noise than surely the Whites will start climbing the table in upcoming weeks.
