Unlucky for some: Leeds sack Kenny over birthday
A footballer has been dropped after his club's new owner decided he was born on an unlucky date.
He also claimed that the Sardinian team had only won one game played on the 17th of the month in the 20 years he was associated with the side.
After Mr Cellino learned the birth date of Kenny, who perhaps coincidentally is the Yorkshire club's second highest paid player on £10,000 (€12,600) a week, he decided that the 36-year-old would never play for the club again.
The goalkeeper – whose mother is from Mullingar – has now been told to look for a new employer.
