JOHN GILES HAS urged Leeds United’s chronically impatient owner Massimo Cellino to sell up for the good of the club.

Cellino made headlines again for all the wrong reasons yesterday when he sacked manager Darko Milanic after just 32 days and six games in charge.

The Slovenian is the third Leeds manager to be dismissed by the controversial Cellino in the space of five months.
