A settlement has been made between Cagliari and the local council over unpaid bills from the early 1990s. Leeds United co-owner Massimo Cellino was the president of the Sardinian club during this period, and his departure has been cited as a reason why an agreement has been made.

Sardegna Oggi have reported Cagliari have agreed in the civil court they will pay 10% of what was owed to the council for services carried out on the club’s ground during Cellino’s reign. Current Cagliari chief Tommaso Giulini was crucial in the long lasting dispute coming to any end, and it was he who purchased the club before Cellino headed to Leeds United in 2014.

In the coming weeks it’s expected Cellino will sell his reaming 50% shares in Leeds United to co-owner Andrea Radrizzani. This would allow Cellino to return to Italy after three years with Leeds United.

Cellino has been something of a controversial figure since his arrival in England, and it’s unlikely he will be missed by the Leeds United faithful.
