Leeds co-owner Massimo Cellino's Football Association ban has been suspended pending an appeal.Read the full story ›
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.
Massimo Cellino has reportedly dismissed speculation he's to replace head coach Steve Evans in the wake of Saturday's 4-1 home defeat to local rivals Huddersfield Town.
Cellino told Sky Sports News, "I'm a sad man with the results, but sometimes I'm not happy with my wife and I don't divorce her so I'm not looking to replace Evans."
Evans became the sixth head coach to work under Massimo Cellino when he was appointed last October.
Before yesterday's game against Bolton Wanderers a number of Leeds United fans staged a protest against the club's owner Massimo Cellino outside Elland Road stadium.
The "Time to go Massimo" group held a fake funeral procession with a number of fans carrying a coffin, which carried the Leeds United colours and an inscription "1919-2016". Leeds United were formed in 1919.
The group had also paid for a plane to fly over the stadium with the message "Time to go Massimo" attached.
Spokesperson for the "Time to go Massimo" group Tom Banks made a speech outside the ground.
An advert paid for by fans calling for Leeds United owner, Massimo Cellino, to sell the club has been removed.
The sign at Elland Road was taken down after the agency responsible was threatened with legal action.
City Ads Yorkshire, who agreed to erect the advert paid for by a group of around 70 United fans, removed it on Friday morning after solicitors acting for Leeds and Cellino told the firm it "clearly amounts to harassment of Mr Cellino."
Lawyers Ward Hadaway issued a legal letter after the billboard appeared outside the entrance to Elland Road's East Stand around lunchtime on Thursday.
This poster has obviously been placed outside the entrance to Mr Cellino's place of work so as to cause the maximum distress to our client.
This exacerbates the quantum of harassment that is intended to be caused and is malicious.
The letter said that despite requests from the club, City Ads Yorkshire had initially refused to remove the advert on the "grounds of freedom of speech".

The programme is labelled "Issue 16b" - Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is famously superstitious and believes the number 17 brings bad luck.
At the beginning of the season Cellino had the pitch blessed and the team went on to achieve a 1-0 win against Cardiff City.
He also famously hates the colour purple.
