Leeds fans on Twitter desperate for Berardi to start on Wednesday

Leeds fans on Twitter desperate for Berardi to start on Wednesday - Championship

Leeds fans may absolutely love Pontus Jansson, but for once they are calling for the Swedish defender to be left out on Wednesday for their play-off semi-final second leg at Elland Road against Derby. That is purely because Gaetano Berardi was so good in the first leg and the Whites want him to start in the second leg.

Changes are expected to be made from the start when Leeds welcome Derby County to Elland Road. Jamie Shackleton will likely come into the side to replace Adam Forshaw, a change that Marcelo Bielsa made in-game when Forshaw limped off, but the change that the fans do not want to see Bielsa make is for Berardi. The Swiss defender has had an injury-hit season, but the Whites love him and want him to start.

His performance up against Derby’s attack was impressive, to say the least. With the likes of Harry Wilson, Mason Mount, Tom Lawrence and David Nugent providing Derby’s attacking threat, having a centre-back pairing of Liam Cooper and Gaetano Berardi worked well. The pair complemented each other and got the job done, and now it will be giving Bielsa a headache as if Jansson is fit the Swede will expect to go straight back in.

The Whites are all keen to see Berardi keep his place and won’t be pleased if Jansson comes in for the Swiss stopper.
