Leeds Fan Pledges to Get Most Ridiculous Tattoo Ever After Losing Two Personal Wagers

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​It's usually not a great idea to place personal wagers on anything football related, as the risk-reward ratio is usually heavily against you.

That did not stop one Leeds United fan, however, who was so adamant that his club would flop in their pursuit of Huesca attacking midfielder Samuel Saiz that he put his backside on the line.

Daniel Fieldhouse also seemed certain United would also flounder in their attempts to permanently buy back their home, Elland Road, so he put down what seemed a relatively risk-free wager.

​​Just in case you do not know about Edoardo Cellino's Burger King antics, here it is in its full glory.


Edoardo is the son of former Leeds owner Massimo Cellino, whose spell at the club was fraught with difficulty and controversy.

​​Daniel must have been worried in June when new Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani completed a deal to make the club the owners of Elland Road, the stadium they had sold off in 2004 during a financial crisis.


However, the killer blow came on Monday as Leeds announced a deal had been agreed with Huesca for the transfer of Samuel Saiz, meaning Daniel's buttocks will now be inked with the image of Cellino chomping on a burger. 

Like the good sport he evidently is, Daniel accepted his fate and pledged to get the tattoo, also taking some credit for the positive developments happening at the West Yorkshire club.​​
