Cellino Fury: Final straw from maniac Leeds boss who BANS Sky Sports

Controversial Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino has reached breaking point, and banned Sky Sports from his side’s Championship bout with Derby County.

United are facing the high-flying Rams in the second tier on Tuesday evening, in a game that is scheduled to be shown on Sky.

However, it now remains to be seen what the broadcaster will do, after the Italian club owner has issued a banning order on Sky cameras and staff.

As reported by The Guardian, the chairman is adamant that the game will not be televised, and has instructed the club’s staff to prevent any of the network’s production crew from gaining access to Elland Road.

Indeed, officials from the network were refused access to the stadium to set up for the fixture on Monday, and it remains to be seen how Sky will bypass Cellino.

A statement from the Football League read: “The League has been made aware that Sky personnel have been unable to access Elland Road today as previously arranged. We have contacted Leeds United to remind the club of its obligations to our broadcast partner and to ask them for their observations.

“As yet we have not received a response from anyone in authority at the club but are hopeful that the matter can be resolved swiftly once the club does engage.”
