Leeds fans react on Twitter to Giuseppe Bellusci's performance v Bristol City

The 26-year-old Italian had another moment of controversy but produced a good display for Leeds on Saturday.

While Leeds United fans would have generally been disappointed with their side's performance against Bristol City on Saturday afternoon - and the fact they were watching Sam Byram make his Premier League debut in a West Ham shirt - there were some positives at Elland Road.

A big one was the performance of Giuseppe Bellusci, even if the defender endured another moment of controversy.

Indeed, Bellusci was given plenty of stick from fans at half-time and duly responded with a few yells of his own.

The Italian has also had plenty of ups and downs when it comes to the Leeds fans already. He was part of the infamous 'injured six' and had a real 'mare at Middlesbrough back when Uwe Rosler was still in Yorkshire.

But the 26-year-old - in purely footballing terms - produced a solid display on Saturday. As Leeds beat Bristol City 1-0, Bellusci was praised by several United fans. And many even chose him as their man of the match.

Here's how supporters reacted on Twitter to his display...
