Leeds owner sees tax evasion trial delayed

Leeds president Massimo Cellino's court trial in Sardinia for tax evasion has been delayed.

The trial was due to take place on Thursday, but the judge has had to step down due to a conflict of interest.

Judge Dr Sandra Lepore convicted Cellino for failing to pay tax on his yacht Nelie in March and cannot hear the second case involving another yacht, Lucky 23.

Cellino was fined around £400,000 for the earlier conviction.

The appeal judge who overturned that decision ruled that if Judge Lepore confirmed in her written report that the tax evasion in the Nelie case had been a deliberate act of dishonesty then Cellino would fail the League's 'owners and directors' test.

Judge Lepore has since stated there was "elusive intent" and "Machiavellian simulation" by Cellino and the League is under mounting pressure to force him to sell the club.
