The Yorkshire club suffered at the hands of the London side with an old face in attendance.

The mini Leeds United renaissance under Steve Evans at Leeds United, which saw them pick up wins v Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town, is well and truly over.

They put in an abject display against QPR yesterday, to lose 1-0 for the second game in a row after a drab performance v Rotherham United last weekend.

The result left a terrible atmosphere among Leeds fans on social media after the game. After Leeds also failed to add a striker and any other loan players before the recent emergency window shut Leeds have little to shout about.

Leeds fans have made it clear on majority that Massimo Cellino is the man they blame for the problems at Elland Road. He was reportedly at the game in London yesterday but he managed to keep himself clear of cameras. However, another controversial Italian was at the game.

YEP reporter Phil Hay took this picture of former director of football Nicola Salerno.

The Italian was responsible for several of Leeds' good and bad recruits last summer, including the likes of Mirco Antenucci and Marco Silvestri, but perhaps made the headlines for the wrong reasons during the fallout over the suspension of Steve Thompson last season.

Nowadays he works as a consultant for Watford's recruitment team after leaving the Yorkshire clun in June.
