Twitter explodes with joy as Leeds announce troublesome defender has left on loan
By Coral Barry
Giuseppe Bellusci has left Leeds to join Empoli on a season-long loan – and Whites supporters are singing from the rooftops.
Rumours of bust-ups with coaches and a terrible training attitude has not gone down well with Leeds supporters in recent years and they were overjoyed to hear Bellusci had jumped ship on Friday.
The centre-back interrupted moments of decent form with incidents of head scratching stupidity and the reaction on Twitter was one over whelming relief. It’s quite funny. Enjoy!

Bellusci's ability is moot. Notoriously disrespectful to coaches, antagonistic in the dressing room, arrogant & cowardly to boot. #lufc

Giuseppe Bellusci won't be missed: described as a "poison at #LUFC" by some and a name my spell check wants to change to 'guy's pope belly'

Bellusci has returned to Italy after initially leaving his homeland to join Leeds in 2014.

The two-year spell in England seems to have finally come to an end for feed-up Leeds supporters.
The only thing that could ruin this now is if Empoli send the troublemaker back to Yorkshire and reject the option to buy come the end of the 2016-17 season.
Bellusci will now play no part in Garry Monk’s first season as manager with the Leeds faithful hoping the former Swansea boss can lead the club to a significantly higher ;eague position than the 13th place Championship finish they managed last season.
