‘An appalling signing’, ‘Utterly dreadful from the get-go’ – Leeds United’s worst signing in the last 5 years? We look..

Published

I think it’s fair to say Leeds United have had their fair share of awful signings over the last few years.

When former owner Massimo Cellino was at the helm of the Yorkshire outfit, the controversial Italian signed an array of players, with most of them failing to really impress the Elland Road faithful.

But in the last five years, who has been THE worst Leeds signing?

We take a look….

Alfie Burns

There have been so many poor signings at Elland Road, with the likes of Giuseppe Bellusci particularly standing out.

However, I will go for another player – Steve Morison.

Leeds moved out top goalscorer Luciano Becchio, brining in Morison as his replacement in January 2013.

Morison never got going at Elland Road, and the decision to let Becchio leave and replace him with Morison stands out as an appalling signing.

George Dagless

Giuseppe Bellusci.

There’s a fair bit of competition for this title unfortunately for Leeds as some of the signings when Massimo Cellino was owner were pretty dire.

I’d give this to Bellusci though thanks to the sheer jubilation when he left the club in the summer. You don’t get that kind of a reaction unless a player has been utterly dreadful from the get-go.

Chris Gallagher

I’d go for Giuseppe Bellusci.

The controversial defender joined for a fee for around £1.5m and played over 50 games for the club, but things went sour pretty quickly.

Not only was he making several costly errors on the pitch, but Bellusci had a stinking attitude. It didn’t take the Whites fans long to work him out and his contract was terminated in July after a loan away from Elland Road last year.
