  • Leeds United President, Massimo Cellino, has failed the Football League's owners and directors test. 
  • Football League: 'Mr Cellino is disqualified from 'holding office or acting as a Relevant
    Person' in respect of LUFC (or any other Club) until 18 March 2015'. 
  • Cellino's conviction for tax evasion is a disqualifying condition under league regulations. 
  • Leeds United have question destabilising nature of decision considering Cellino's conviction will be 'spent' by March; Cellino can appeal to the Professional Conduct Committe within 14 days.
