Leeds Utd releases statement about Cellino's potential ban

Following speculation in the media, the Club felt it was important to clarify the position with regards to Massimo Cellino’s potential ban for allegedly breaching agency regulations in relation to the transfer of Ross McCormack from the Club to Fulham FC in July 2014.

As stated in his message to supporters following the initial decision, Mr Cellino has lodged an appeal to overturn the guilty verdict and any sanctions imposed upon Mr Cellino by the FA will be held/suspended until the appeal has been heard and a verdict has been found. We can also confirm that the Club has lodged an appeal in relation to the sanctions that were imposed directly on us. We are confident that the appeals will be successful.

Everybody at the Club is completely focused on supporting Garry Monk and his team for the rest of this season. The Club will make no further comment on Mr Cellino’s appeal until the process is complete.
