Former Leeds captain Jason Pearce reacts on Twitter to Cellino's Sky row

Elland Road Revie Stand

Former Leeds defender voiced his disbelief at the events in the run up to the Derby fixture.

Life at Leeds United is never simple - especially under the reign of owner Massimo Cellino.

Just ask a player who has been part of it. Last season Jason Pearce began the campaign as club captain - only to be sold to Wigan in the mid-season transfer window.

He had lost his place in the team, and went on to suffer relegation with the Latics, where he remains in League One.

Pearce still evidently keeps an eye on goings on at his old club, using Twitter to take note of the club's row with Sky Sports.

After not allowing the broadcaster access to the stadium ahead of tonight's clash with Derby, the club relented with hours to spare, but issued a strong statement on their website blasting the company for enforcing numerous fixture and kick off time changes upon the club.

Pearce seemed like he could barely believe what was going on, sending a series of messages.
