Leeds co-owner Massimo Cellino’s Football Association ban was suspended yesterday pending an appeal.
Cellino was due to begin a 12-month suspension tomorrow after the FA found him guilty of breaking its agency regulations in relation to the 2014 sale of Ross McCormack to Fulham.
The Italian immediately declared his intention to appeal against the verdict, which was handed out on December 8, and succeeded in getting a six-month reduction.
However he maintains his innocence and is now appealing against the decision for a second time, using the FA’s “Rule K.”
Last month Cellino sold half of his stake in Leeds to fellow Italian Andrea Radrizzani.
