Massimo Cellino Calls In Lawyers To Look At 'Impossible' Situation At Leeds United
Published May 15, 2014
CLOSURE INVESTIGATED: In London, James Ducker wrote the Football League "is to investigate" Cellino’s closure of club’s training ground after the"controversial owner began the process of shedding up to 70 jobs at Elland Road." Staff were called to a meeting at the stadium Wednesday at which Cellino’s "plans for large-scale redundancies were announced." The league will visit Leeds next week to determine if shutting down the Thorp Arch academy until pre-season training begins in July "breaches any requirements relating to the funds that they receive towards the cost of running the base" (LONDON TIMES, 5/15).
