Leeds United are in their third consecutive season in the Premier League, after staying away from the top division for 16 years.

During that spell, the Whites were owned by Massimo Cellino between 2014 and 2017, after which he sold the club to their current owner, Andrea Radrizzani.

Cellino invested the money earned from selling Leeds to buy Brescia in 2017 and he still owns the Serie B side. They suffered a 6-2 crushing defeat at the hands of SSC Bari on Tuesday.

Former Leeds forward Mirco Antenucci found the back of the net and his goal helped him take ‘small revenge’ over Cellino for what he did to him at Elland Road.

That’s according to Tutto Bari, who relay a comment from the 38-year-old on how Cellino blocked him from staying at the English club for a longer period. Antenucci was at Leeds between 2014 and 2016, before leaving them for SPAL.

“If I had scored 12 goals in my second year at Leeds, I would have had the automatic renewal. In December I was already at 8 and then Cellino, owner of the club, ordered not to play me anymore. I managed to reach ten before returning to Italy,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
