'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cellino can see the light at the end of the tunnel

New Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino says he can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after a crazy start to life at the club.

The 57-year-old Italian, who is still in the process of selling Serie A side Cagliari, has stirred things up since his arrival at Elland Road.

He finally completed his long drawn out takeover at the club on April 7th after appealing against the Football League`s decision to ban him from taking over the club. Since then he has been served with a second winding up order faced by the club in the matter of months, he has closed down the Thorp Arch training complex for the summer and he has reportedly fired 70 staff at the club as well as questioning the whereabouts of manager Brian McDermott.

Upon his arrival at Leeds, Cellino stated that he wanted to buy back the Elland Road ground, which is currently being rented, as well as returning Leeds to the Premier League by 2016 and he feels that he is finally getting there after a turbulent six weeks at the club.

Speaking on the Leeds official website , Cellino said, "I am studying Leeds and I am studying English football. I respect that I don`t know everything about English football. I have to listen and I have to learn. I have to learn fast but I will say that I am a fast learner.

"I have been running and rushing around and I haven`t stopped thinking. But in the last two or three days I have started to see that there is a little bit of light at the end of tunnel.

"Until a week ago I was going in one direction then the other and it was driving me crazy.

"But since last week I know where the line is so we have to keep going the distance and we`ll get there."
