Leeds United Owner Told He Can't Own Or Run The Club

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino could be forced to sell the club after the Football League announced the Italian has failed its Owners' and Directors' Test.

Cellino successfully appealed against the League's decision to block his takeover of Leeds in April, but after receiving the detailed evidence from the Italian court that convicted him of tax evasion, the governing body has ruled the 58-year-old is not fit to continue as the club's president.

The League's board of directors agreed unanimously at a meeting last week, after finally receiving the Italian judge's written report on Cellino's conviction for failing to pay tax on his yacht, that Cellino is ``subject to a disqualifying condition under the terms of the Test''. 

The League confirmed that Cellino is entitled to appeal.

We're waiting for a statement from the club expected in the next hour.
