Massimo Cellino has explained losing enthusiasm for Cagliari.

Cellino has purchased Leeds United and is ready to sell up at Cagliari.

"They made me run away from Cagliari," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Anything that happened was always considered to be my fault. I am a great alibi for political failure and directorial incompetence.

"The Stadio Sant'Elia is a pile of rubble that cannot be recovered. The team is suffering, as we are in pieces both physically and psychologically. If we stay in Serie A it's less credit to us and more a sign of how bad others are doing."
