Axe man: Cellino hinted that Evans' reign will soon be over

By Coral Barry

Leeds fans calling for the removal of owner Massimo Cellino have flashed a sign asking the Italian to leave their club.

A ‘time to go Massimo’ placard has been picked up by Sky Sports cameras, not at any football event but at the Premier League Darts in Liverpool.

The Italian has dismissed five managers in his time at the Yorkshire club and has managed to alienate a significant section of the Leeds supporters for failing to live up to his promises.

Coverage of round eight of the Premier League Darts is well underway on Sky Sports and watching Leeds fans were quick to spot a familiar name among the signs.

The picture below has begun to circulate on Twitter with delighted and impressed users complimenting Leeds supporters’ creativity.

Darts fans are encouraged to write messages that players and cameras can pick up during the matches and desperate Leeds supporters saw it as an opportunity to help their football club.

Cellino has upset fans in the past with his antics and stern hand and has twice been banned by the Football League from owning the Yorkshire club.

In other Leeds news, Cellino has given his latest manager just nine games to save his managerial post.
