 Football News 24/7

The son of Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has been charged by the FA for comments he made on social media.

Edoardo Cellino, who is a director at the club,  has been charged by The FA for what are alleged to be 'abusive and/or insulting and/or improper' comments, in contravention of Rule E3(1).

A statement from the FA further stated that the breach is an “Aggravated Breach” as defined in Rule E3(2), as it includes a reference to disability.

He has until 11 April 2016 to respond to the charge.

Leeds drew 1-1 with QPR on Tuesday evening which left them 15th in the Championship in what has been a lackluster season on the pitch, whilst Cellino's controversial ownership has continued to draw opposition from the club's fans.
