Massimo Cellino has thanked fans for their support after news came through today that the decision to disqualify him from ownership of Leeds United had been upheld.

United have not yet said what would happen with the ownership going forward, but have issued a statement, which reads: “Mr Cellino would like to thank the fans, sponsors and members of the wider footballing community that have given him overwhelming support, not just since the disqualifying order was issued but since he arrived at the club.

“We are surprised and disappointed by the verdict, however we are continuing to take legal advice.

“We will release further statements in due course.”
