Leeds supporters aiming to push owner Massimo Cellino out of the club have posted a video on social media that shows four Premier League stars apparently saying “Time to go Massimo”.
The video, posted by the account @WhiteLeedsSite, features Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, plus Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
All four are shown appearing to say the slogan, although there is no context given in the brief video, with no evidence to indicate the quartet knew it referred to Leeds chief Cellino.

The fans’ group ‘Time to go Massimo’ has campaigned against the Italian’s ownership, holding protests outside Elland Road and in Leeds city centre.
Funded by unhappy supporters, it has carried out a number of protests including the staging of a mock funeral and the projection of several anti-Cellino messages onto the side of Elland Road stands.
Cellino’s two-year reign in charge of Leeds has been littered with controversy and managerial sackings. The former Cagliari owner is currently on his sixth head coach while also appealing against a second Football League disqualification for tax evasion.
