Graham Bean, who was sacked from his key role as a football administrator at Leeds United today by owner Massimo Cellino, has revealed that he has never seen morale so low anywhere in his career, as he posted on Twitter.
The former Football Association compliance officer has said that he attempted to get the staff a pay rise from Cellino, who simply answered no.
Bean has also reported that the staff have not had a pay rise in four years, and with many of them having been dismissed this summer, Bean was keen to get them onto a higher financial packet in an attempt to improve the situation.
He said: “Last week me and FD tried to get the staff a pay rise as they’ve not had one for 4 years.
“The answer was a single unanimous NO. Staff need lifting badly…….u can’t fault their efforts – but nver seen morale so low anywhere (sic).”
Word from the club suggests that Bean was sacked for failing to notify Cellino over a fixture change in the summer months.
This will see Leeds take on Reading on Wednesday before facing Sheffield Wednesday at 12.15 next Saturday, something that the Leeds owner is said to be unhappy about.
