Leeds fans have faith in Berardi after Cooper injury

Leeds United fans have been undeterred by an injury to Liam Cooper as they have complete faith in Gaetano Berardi who looks set to start against Wigan on Friday.

Cooper limped off during the warm-up before the Sheffield Wednesday game on Saturday and the centre back remains a doubt heading into this fixture.

Easter brings about fixture congestion in the Championship and with Leeds playing on both Friday and Monday they won’t want to risk Cooper if he isn’t 100%.

Cooper has been exceptional for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term with his performances earning him a spot in the Championship Team of the Season. The Englishman will undoubtedly be a huge miss for Leeds but luckily they have a ready-made replacement.

Berardi stepped in brilliantly last weekend as Leeds kept a clean sheet whilst beating their Yorkshire rivals 1-0.

And fans are optimistic about Berardi putting in a repeat performance against Wigan on Friday as Leeds look to continue their promotion push, with many expressing their faith in the tough-tackling Italian.
