Leeds United: Fans divided over potential Gaetano Berardi contract extension

Leeds United: Fans divided over potential Gaetano Berardi contract extension - Leeds United

Responding to a piece by Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth, many Leeds United supporters have been divided over the notion of awarding defender Gaetano Berardi a new contract despite his years of service – with fans since going on to debate the 31-year-old on Twitter. 

Berardi, who has made 150 appearances for Leeds United in all competitions since signing for the club back in the summer of 2014 (Transfermarkt), could be on his way out this summer if the club opt against offering the Swiss stalwart a new deal. This season, Berardi has found himself on the fringes of Marcelo Bielsa’s promotion plans – with the player making just 11 Championship starts so far this campaign,

In the games he has played, fellow senior natural defenders Luke Ayling, Stuart Dallas, Ben White and Liam Cooper have all mounted a superior number of tackles on average per game, according to WhoScored.com – potentially highlighting why he is not a first name on the team sheet. However, Berardi did put on an ‘impressive display‘ against Huddersfield last weekend, as relayed by Smyth – resulting in debate over whether his contract should indeed be extended. One fan even described him as ‘underrated‘, find all of the fans’ best verdicts down below.
