Massimo Cellino Says He Has Been 'Humiliated' During Takeover Of Leeds United

Prospective League Championship Leeds United Owner Massimo Cellino said that "he has felt 'humiliated' during his protracted takeover after bankrolling the club for the last two months," according to James Riach of the London GUARDIAN. Cellino confirmed that "he has paid the club's wages and funded their debts over the past two months yet has become increasingly frustrated with the lack of progress made by the Football League and the current owners GFH Capital during takeover talks in recent weeks." The Football League board "will on Thursday discuss Cellino's potential takeover." Cellino said, "I will wait until a decision by the League. If I am not accepted, I will go away silently like I came. I am too old to fight wars which are not mine" (GUARDIAN, 3/11).
