Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino also facing FA ban?

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is allegedly facing an FA suspension on top of his Football League ban.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is allegedly facing a potential ban from the Football Association, on top of his recent Football League suspension.

The Italian was suspended from owning or running the club until next June due to a conviction over unpaid VAT in his homeland.

He has until October 21 to submit an appeal, but could be hit with a separate dispute from the FA.

The governing body is investigating claims that Cellino paid a backhander in relation to Ross McCormack's £10.75m move to Fulham and violated third-party ownership regulations when he signed Adryan on loan, according to The Mirror.

Cellino has sacked five managers during his 18-month reign at Leeds, recently recruiting Steve Evans as Uwe Rosler's successor.
