Football League reaction to Cellino's Sky Sports 'ban'

Cellino is trying to ban Sky Sports crews from Elland Road Credit: Press Association

"The League has been made aware that Sky personnel have been unable to access Elland Road today as previously arrange."

"We have contacted Leeds United to remind the club of its obligations to our broadcast partner and to ask them for their observations. "As yet, we have not received a response from anyone in authority at the club, but are hopeful that the matter can be resolved swiftly once the club does engage."

Former Cagliari owner Cellino is currently waiting for an appeal date as he fights a second Football League ban for breaching its Owners' and Directors' test following a tax evasion conviction in Italy.

He will not be present at Elland Road on Tuesday and has left the enforcement of his ban with other staff.

Cellino 'bans' Sky Sports crew from Elland Road

Leeds president Massimo Cellino is attempting to prevent his side's clash with Derby on Tuesday being televised.

It is understood the controversial Italian - currently in Miami - has instructed staff to deny Sky Sports' production crew entry to Elland Road for a game which is to be broadcast live on the network.

Staff from Sky Sports were denied entry to Elland Road on Monday as they arrived to set up for the match.

Cellino's stance is in response to the number of times his side have been shown on Sky Sports this season, resulting in a number of kick-off and date changes.

Leeds have been shown live on Sky Sports nine times already this season, with Tuesday's game taking them into double figures, with four of them home games.

Earlier this season Cellino said he would be capping Leeds' notoriously large away support at 2,000 in order to make the point that his club would not be taken for granted, only to reverse the decision after fan dissent.

The case related to the transfers of former Cagliari players Edgar Alvarez and Joe Bizera in 2007.

A new government ruling which was introduced last October means the alleged offences are no longer punishable by law and Mr Cellino has been acquitted by the court.
