Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino reportedly demanded that Brazilian starlet Adryan was dropped from Leeds United’s starting eleven on Friday night, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The Whites ultimately lost the clash against Rotherham, falling to a 2-1 defeat despite initially leading the game through a goal from striker Mirco Antenucci.
Adryan did eventually make his debut for the Yorkshire club from the bench, but the circumstances surrounding his inclusion on the night were somewhat bizarre.
The Flamengo loanee was initially named in the first team, but was pulled out shortly before kick off, with academy graduate Lewis Cook taking his place instead.
Despite this, Adryan still featured on the bench, suggesting that there was nothing wrong.
A club insider is now suggesting to the Mirror that it was, in fact, Cellino who demanded that Darko Milanic drop Adryan from the starting line up.
Adryan impressed in his short time on the pitch, almost equalising a very tight game.
