Gaetano Berardi drew the short straw at the pre-match presser on Thursday and he probably knew it. The journalists all had one question, what do you think to Andrea Radrizzani’s comments about the squad?

It started as the answer he was probably told to give, he said he didn’t hear the comments and didn’t hear any of the players talking about it. He also said he didn’t care what Radrizzani said, which was maybe lost in translation slightly, or maybe not. What he went on to say was a slight dig at the owner, saying if he had anything to say to him he would do it to his face and “here”, as in to the media. Berardi can’t be questioned for commitment but others certainly could, if it was a question about discipline then it would have been a very awkward presser.

Radrizzani said what we were all thinking, there is little doubt about that to be honest. The players have lacked all the things needed to succeed or even compete and most of us have been saying it for months. His problem is that he’s been saying things like the squad is better than last seasons and we’re a top six side all season and now he feels like he has to set the record straight, but maybe he’ll realise saying nothing at all on the side is the best way going forward because it just causes a stir that nobody needs.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
