Marcelo Bielsa’s translator Salim Lamrani has issued his latest insight into life at Elland Road by praising defender Gaetano Berardi in a Twitter post.
Lamrani became famed for sharing nicknames for the Leeds players on Twitter last season, and he has now taken this a step further by documenting his relationships with the players in more detail.
He has previously posted about Stuart Dallas’ generosity towards him at Christmas time, and Bielsa’s right-hand man has now turned his attention to Berardi who has been nicknamed ‘the lion’.
Lamrani spoke of his respect for Berardi, as the defender showed a keen interest in the translator’s work. The story was documented in full on Lamrani’s Twitter page:

Plenty of Leeds supporters responded to this message in adoration of both Lamrani and Berardi, while other fans questioned whether Lamrani’s sharing of memories could be an indication he has left the club.
Here are some of the responses…
