Giuseppe Bellusci sends firm message on Twitter once again, Leeds fans respond

The Leeds defender has confronted his critics on social media once more.

Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci has once again sent a message to his critics on Twitter, reiterating his stance that even those who don't like him should get behind the team.

The Italian has a history of clashing with supporters on social media and has become a divisive presence for some fans, especially since his involvement in the infamous 'injured six' saga.

A lot of the Leeds faithful do back him, though, and Bellusci sent out a message for those who don't on Saturday morning.

The 25-year-old then retweeted a number of replies from Leeds supporters who are getting behind him.

Bellusci's role at Elland Road next season will be interesting to observe. Sol Bamba appears a vital presence within the Whites' back four but Liam Cooper started as captain once again during Leeds' friendly draw with Harrogate Town on Friday evening.

Depending on who else comes in, it may simply be a case of new boss Uwe Rosler rotating between Bellusci, Bamba and Cooper - who can all work with each other and offer different qualities for the Yorkshire club.
