'I almost threw Cellino off the balcony' - Former Leeds star Vinnie Jones joked

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino

Former Leeds United star doesn't have a positive memory of his 'meeting' with ex-owner Massimo Cellino.

Massimo Cellino left Leeds United last week after three-and-a-half controversial seasons at Elland Road.

New owner Andrea Radrizanni is quickly learning that life is never simple at Leeds, but hopefully he will learn from his predecessor's mistakes.

One 'must' is for Radrizzani to familiarise himself with the history of the club and it's former players.

Among the many ex-Leeds cult heroes is Vinnie Jones, who yesterday hit out at Cellino for failing to know who he was when they crossed paths.

Jones said he was so annoyed by Cellino that he joked he felt like throwing him off a balcony.

As a hard man of football and Hollywood, Jones is not a character to be messed with.

If Cellino hears his comments he may well feel like he had a lucky escape. 

Radrizzani may find it impossible to learn about every one of Leeds' former stars, but Jones is a face he should try and remember if he doesn't already recognise it.
