Leeds United Players Recalled From Holidays To Meet New Owner Cellino

League Championship Leeds United's players "were recalled from their holidays" to meet Owner Massimo Cellino on Monday, according to SKY SPORTS. The players "have reportedly not been paid for the last month after the Championship club were hit by a winding-up petition" after missing the date to repay a £1M loan from Sport Capital. That is "expected to be one of the topics of discussion." Defender Scott Wootton "admitted some of the players were frustrated at being called back from their time off." Wootton: "I'm sure the lads will have to had change flights, I'm not sure what's going to happen over that. I'm sure the lads are frustrated to be honest, yes." On the issue of not being paid, he added, "No-one's spoken to anyone. Hopefully we'll find out all about that in this meeting now, it'll be one of things that will crop up" (SKY SPORTS, 6/2).
