Kalvin Phillips shows love for Gaetano Berardi and Tyler Roberts after Southampton win
Kalvin Phillips took to Instagram after beating Southampton to share his love for two Leeds United teammates.
It was a special match for both Tyler Roberts and Gaetano Berardi, with the former scoring his first Premier League goal and Berardi making his first Premier League appearance.
Not only that, but the Swiss returned to action after almost a year out injured, and Phillips was delighted for the defender.
He posted an image of Berardi in his Instagram story with a caption that read, “Warrior love to see it.”
Phillips also showed support for Roberts, who has been the subject of criticism from supporters in recent days.
A second story had the caption, “My bro! So happy for you man.”
Thrilled for Berardi
We are delighted that Berardi finally got to play for Leeds again.
His contract is up at the end of the season with no sign of a new deal as yet, so Sunday’s match against West Brom could be the final time we see him play.
He has been a brilliant servant for the club and will always be remembered for his role in helping us get to the Premier League.
Berardi looked good in his 45 minutes on the pitch, too, helping the Whites to a clean sheet that was vital to the win.
He was composed on the ball and frequently retained possession, only giving the ball away four times, per SofaScore.
We are keen for him to start at the weekend, perhaps alongside Liam Cooper so that we can reunite the pair for what could be one last game.
