LUFC Agent rubbishes Kenny rumours

LUFC Agent rubbishes Kenny rumours

The agent of Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has rubbished reports that he is being kicked out of Elland Road because he was born on the 17th, a number that owner Massimo Cellino believes is unlucky.

The eccentric Italian owner believes the number 17 is unlucky and he retired both the shirt number as well as removing every number 17 seat from the Cagliari stadium, where he was previously in charge, and replacing it with 16B.

Kenny hasn`t travelled with the Leeds squad on their two week training camp in Italy this week despite having a year remaining on his current deal at Elland Road. The 36-year-old has also been questioned over his weight after pictures last week looked like the shot stopper had piled on the pounds during his summer break but his agent Paul Masterton says the reports are nonsense. 'I've no idea where this number 17 stuff came from, but it's complete nonsense as far as we're concerned.

'We're more bothered about the picture to be honest. It's been massively doctored. Paddy is the same weight now as he was five years ago.

'I was playing golf with him last week and unless he's put four stones on since then somebody somewhere is being mischievous to say the least.'


Kenny has been a regular in the side since his arrival from Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2012. In his first season, he played every championship game and he was an ever-present last season until being forced out through injury in early February.

Despite returning to full fitness before the end of the season, Kenny couldn`t dislodge on loan goalkeeper Jack Butland from the side, something Kenny is believed to have been unhappy about.

Despite ridiculing the number 17 rumours, it does seem like the veteran goalkeepers time at Elland Road is likely to end this summer. Leeds have signed Stuart Taylor today and they are looking to bring in another goalkeeper before the start of the season.
