Flowers launches legal challenge against Cellino takeover TSS February 1, 2014 Leeds United 28 Comments The fall-out from a chaotic day at Elland Road continues this morning as Andrew Flowers launches a legal challenge against Massimo Cellino’s takeover of the club. Flowers, head of Enterprise Insurance, the club’s main sponsor was part of the Sports Capital group which failed to complete a takeover attempt themselves earlier this week. The news comes via Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post who posted on his Twitter feed “Andrew Flowers tells me he’s instructed Timothy Dutton QC to begin preparing a legal challenge against Cellino takeover” Last night Flowers revealed his company would be pulling their sponsorship from the club and seeking compensation for money already paid. Enterprise Insurance were followed by the club’s Academy sponsor Flamingoland who ended their support for the club in protest of the day’s events. Amidst all the drama, it seems Leeds United completed the loan signing of Andrea Tabanelli last night. Whether he’s eligible to play today is unknown as there’s still been no comment from the club on any of the events which took place yesterday, but Gianluca Festa is expected to take charge of the team today assisted by Academy head Neil Redfearn who appears to have avoided the cull thus far. Elsewhere, it seems the club has set up barricades in the East Stand following surreal scenes last night when a group of 30+ Leeds United fans blocked the exits to Elland Road to prevent Cellino from leaving.
