A number of Leeds United supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on Elland Road fan fan favourite Salim Lamrani sharing an insight into Gaetano Berardi's personality.

Lamrani is the right-hand man of Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa, described by Leeds Live as the Argentine's translator, academic and once deemed "the most overqualified man in Ligue 1" by Le Monde when the two were at Lille.

 

Leeds Live adds that Lamrani is a prolific author with a number of published books to his name, and has spoken at conferences in Cuba, England, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Bolivia, and the United States alongside the likes of Noam Chomsky, Ken Livingstone and Howard Zinn.

Over the course of last season he gave a number of the Whites players notable nicknames, such as Jamie "The Tornado" Shackleton, Mateusz "The Lightning" Klich and Liam "The Example" Cooper (Leeds Live) and this term he has been taking to social media to delve deeper into the players' personalities.

A few days ago Lamrani chronicled Stuart "The Generous" Dallas and now he has gone into detail regarding Gaetano "The Lion" Berardi:

Many Elland Road faithful loved what Lamrani posted and let him know on social media how much they enjoyed his anecdotes, hoping there could be a book in the pipeline:

Other nicknames included "El Profesor" for Bielsa, "The Brave" for Gianni Alioski and "The Brain" for Pablo Hernandez (Leeds Live).
