Leeds midfielder Tommaso Bianchi reportedly warned after collecting five yellow cards in eight matches on loan

Elland Road East Stand

The Leeds United player recently returned to his homeland for the rest of the season.

Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi has never been afraid to get stuck into a tackle but his style also means a booking is always a distinct possibility.

So it has proved since the Italian left Elland Road on loan for a spell with Serie B team Ascoli and according to the print edition of Wednesday’s Piceno Time he has now been warned about his future conduct by the Italian Football Federation.

The 27-year-old was robbed of the chance to impress former Leeds manager Uwe Rosler and current boss Steve Evans when he picked up a serious injury in pre-season, and after returning for the Whites’ under-21s he was sent on loan to his homeland for regular first-team football.

Things did not start particularly well when Bianchi was sent off after collecting two yellow cards in just 25 minutes against AC Cesena, and while he has remained on the pitch since he has still picked up three more bookings in his next seven games.

Bianchi has clearly regained full fitness and a prolonged stay in Italy could now be on the cards if a deal can be agreed this summer.

However, much could depend on who is in charge of Leeds at the time and whether or not they rate the midfielder.
