Lifelong Leeds United Fan Russell Crowe Asks Twitter If He Should Buy The Club…

Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, owner of a Championship football club?

Leeds are currently owned by Eleonora Sport Limited but were thrown into turmoil when banned president Massimo Cellino sold his personal stake in both the company and the club.

We will have to wait and see whether Crowe’s messages come to anything, but one thing’s for sure, Leeds fans appear very keen for the Gladiator to take the reins…
