Leeds United manager Darko Milanic is impressed with Giuseppe Bellusci’s ability to adapt to Championship football so quickly.

Leeds United manager Darko Milanic has been singing the praises of Giuseppe Bellusci.

The Italian defender joined the West Yorkshire club from Catania in the summer transfer window and has taken to the Championship like a duck to water.

The 25-year-old has been a key player for the Whites, and Milanic is pleased with how the centre-back has adapted to life in the second tier of English football.

Indeed, Bellusci has been a key player for Leeds so far, and the following stats show just how good he has been.

Leeds are back in action in the Championship on Friday when they take on Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

The Whites head into the Yorkshire derby placed 14th in the table with 15 points from 11 matches, just four points off the playoff spots.

However, it will not be easy to win against Rotherham. The Millers are just three points behind Leeds and will be determined to get one over on their Yorkshire rivals.
