Morning Leeds-in for 17 January: At least Cellino is gone, right?

Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers - Sky Bet Championship - Elland Road

At least Massimo Cellino is gone, right?

Massimo Cellino took over Brescia after he sold Leeds to Andrea Radrizzani, and has continued his, ahem, “work” at the Serie B club. Yes, you read the tweet right, he’s fired a manager and brought back the manager he had earlier in the season. Brescia is 17th in the table and is out of the “playout” (relegation playoffs) zone on goal difference alone.

As much as Leeds fans are frustrated with results on the pitch and the lack of activity in the transfer window, which are understandable, at least the owner isn’t in the press for all the wrong reasons, getting sued or suspended by the FA for dodgy agent payments.

Be thankful for small things, even if things aren’t great on the pitch right now.
