Leeds United’s director of football Victor Orta has hinted that Gaetano Berardi’s future at the club could continue past the summer.
Swiss defender Berardi will see his contract expire this summer at Elland Road after spending the last six seasons at the club.
Playing regularly during the first few seasons of his spell with the Yorkshire club, Berardi has found game time hard to come by this term, starting just 30% of Leeds’ Championship games.
With the football season currently at a standstill and Leeds sitting top of the league table, Marcelo Bielsa’s side are on the verge of a Premier League promotion.
Reacting to a tweet from journalist Beren Cross, who shared an article on Orta’s hint, fans gave an opinion on the defender’s future…

I love the club and would give 100% every game. Like him though, I’d be a liability on the pitch. Wasn’t he oart of the Italian 5 who refused to play too?

He should be here next season…… whenever that is

He’s off back to Italy. Joining Cellino’s Brescia in the summer.

He deserves a new contract, he is Leeds through and through. No matter where we are next, he will do what ever is asked of him. He may never be the player of the season but when he plays he gives everything!

Deserves it imo….. Made his mistakes, but by God, no one can question his commitment and passion for the Leeds Utd cause….
