Berardi was right – deserves winter axe

Gaetano Berardi made the honest admission before Christmas that the club should have a better left back playing than him and on this display no one could argue with his comments.

He was second best to the Burton wingers for much of the game, and his frustration shone through when making a rash challenge on the stroke of half time, picking up a booking for his misdemeanour.

While he is the best the club have at their disposal right now, they really should be looking to improve over the January window, and Thomas Christiansen should be hoping for the option to axe Berardi from the starting XI in the new year.

In other Leeds United news, the club should forget Matthew Pennington and focus on signing this Premier League stalwart available for a bargain.
