Gaetano Berardi has sprung a surprise on the Leeds United squad by paying them a visit at Thorp Arch ahead of Sunday’s clash with Brentford.

The Championship title-winning squad at Leeds was a tight-knit group and their bond clearly extends beyond playing together.

As Leeds gear up for the visit of the Bees on Sunday, they saw former defender Gaetano Berardi welcomed back into Thorp Arch to see the current squad:

The faces of the players tell you all you need to know about Berardi’s return, and the hugs from each player show how respected a figure the Swiss man was during his seven-year spell at Leeds.

Amongst those players reacting on social media were midfield duo, Adam Forshaw and Kalvin Phillips:

It was a proper tearjerker of a video to see.

I was lucky to be in the ground when Berardi bid farewell to this club last season and it was a really emotional one, and the love is still there for him.

It seems like he could be over for the weekend and possibly visiting his old friend Pontus Jansson too as he also returns to Elland Road for the second time since leaving.

Phillips’ reaction is all of us when Berardi walks through the door in that video.
