Leeds fans urge Russell Crowe not to mess them about

Leeds United fans are unimpressed by Russell Crowe's flirting with a buyout.

Paul Keat, chairman of the Leeds United supporter's trust, told BBC Radio 5 live that news of Russell Crowe's interest in the club was "the latest round" in the Leeds United "circus" and that all the fans want is "consistency and stability".

"If he is serious, let him come forward," said Keats. "But whether he has the time and resources has yet to be determined.

"His net worth probably does not merit him buying it outright. But in football you need to have a good friend, so whether he buys it himself or uses the friendships he's got.

"There are people in Yorkshire who have money so whether he comes as part of consortium is up to him.

"If he wants to come to Elland Road and sit next to me and my children he is more than welcome. I will even buy him a pint."
