Leeds United in the EFL: Remember Giuseppe Bellusci? Here’s what he’s up to nowadays



Leeds United have come on leaps and bounds under the tutelage of Marcelo Bielsa and have made spades of improvement on and off the pitch in recent years.

During their time in the EFL, particularly under the ownership Massimo Cellino, Leeds were by no means a stable club. Many players came and went, with most signings turning out to be miss rather than hit.

Giuseppe Bellusci was a player who very much typified Cellino’s reign.

Bellusci arrived at Elland Road in the summer of 2014, joining on a permanent deal from Italian side Catania under Dave Hockaday.

In his first season in the Championship, Bellusci featured 30 times. He was shown 13 yellow cards, and was dismissed on two occasions.

The following campaign, he featured only 27 times under Steve Evans, and was embroiled in arguments with fans on social media towards the end of the season.

What nationality was John Charles?

The defender spent the following campaign on loan in Italy with Empoli, before returning to Leeds ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Bellusci wasn’t to play any part under Thomas Christiansen, however, and he sealed a move away to Palermo before the season got underway.

So what is Bellusci up to nowadays?

Well, now 32 years of age, the centre-half is playing in his native for Monza, who play in Italy’s second division, Serie B.

Bellusci hasn’t featured since the opening day of the season against Reggina, where he featured for only 14 minutes and was shown a yellow card.
