Massimo Cellino shares his daughter’s advice about Leeds United

Massimo Cellino says that his daughter wants him to walk away from Leeds United.

Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino has revealed to The Guardian that his daughter has advised him to walk away from the club.

Cellino took over Leeds back in April 2014, as reported by BBC Sport, but the Italian entrepreneur is not a popular figure among the fans.

There have been protests against the Italian entrepreneur, with many supporters calling for him to leave the West Yorkshire outfit.

The former owner of Italian club Cagliari has revealed that his daughter has advised him to walk away from Leeds.

Cellino, though, has made it clear that he will stay on at Elland Road and do his best to take the Whites back to the Premier League.

“My daughter said last week, ‘Daddy, Leeds is killing you’,” Cellino told The Telegraph. “I know but I don’t like to give up.

“The fans want to win but I want to win bigger. I don’t want to go into the Premier League then back. I want to go in the Premier League then compete for the Champions League.”

Cellino seems very passionate about Leeds, and he does appear to have the best interests of the club at heart.

However, some of the Italian’s decisions, such as appointing the wrong managers and then sacking them, have not done any good to the club.

For Cellino to fulfil his dream of taking Leeds back to the Champions League, he needs to make sure that there is stability at the club.
