Leeds fans react on Twitter to another predictable Cellino U-turn

The Italian now says he doesn't want to sell Leeds until next year.

Leeds United fans took to Twitter on Friday afternoon after yet more news from owner Massimo Cellino.

Indeed, the Italian recently declared his desire to sell the Yorkshire club, although former Leeds defender Dominic Matteo warned supporters to wait before taking his words seriously.

As it turns out, Matteo was right. Cellino had promised to sell the Whites to Leeds Fans United before judging them incapable of buying him out. And the businessman now says he will wait until next year to sell the club.

Fans aren't surprised.

On social media, they expressed their lack of surprise and referred to how often the Italian changes his mind. If Cellino stays in power, Steve Evans might benefit as the two seem to get along. Will that last forever, though, considering the owner's track record?

Some fans are on Cellino's side and believe he saved Leeds and deserves to be respected while he remains at Elland Road. That appears to be a minority view, however. Here's how supporters reacted on Twitter to Cellino's predictable U-turn. Will he simply remain United's owner for years to come?
