Leeds United fans opposed to owner Massimo Cellino’s running of the club have mounted another cheeky protest right on his footballing doorstep.
The Time To Go Massimo group today parked a trailer carrying a large anti-Cellino sign directly outside the East Stand at United’s Elland Road ground.
The move follows the Italian’s claim that he is ready to sell up at Leeds because he is “tired and hurt and lonely” after a controversial and turbulent two years in charge.
Written in the style of a second hand car advert, the sign reads: “FOR SALE – URGENT. One football club, used to be a great runner but now a project in dire need of restoration after several careless owners.
“Does not include stadium or training ground and may be liable to court cases.
“Willing seller, loyal but very fed up fan base. Price negotiable, unlimited potential.”
Time To Go Massimo’s previous protests include staging a mock funeral for the club and projecting anti-Cellino messages onto the side of the East Stand.
Cellino was today due to take part in a United board meeting with a view to planning for the forthcoming 2016-17 season.
