Michelle Keegan is a popular lass in England.
And now, it seems, she’s getting involved in football matters too.
The former Coronation Street actress today took to social media to voice her support for Massimo Cellino to leave Leeds United.
She simply wrote “#TimeToGoMassimo”.
Within a short period of time her tweet went viral, and Leeds supporters joined her wish to see the Italian out of Elland Road.
The past fortnight has been dominated by renewed public pressure on Cellino, the flamboyant Italian whose 22-month reign as owner of Leeds has seen repeated flashes of conflict with some of United’s fans.
The Italian is facing charges the he should leave English football, while at the same he’s raising ticket prices at the club, while he’s also in a row over TV fixtures and broadcasting rights.
It’s all a complete shambles.
Leeds are 16th in the Championship under manager.
See the tweets calling for Cellino’s head below.
