Leeds United are due to take on Salford City in the Carabao Cup later this evening.
Much has been focused on Bielsa suggesting that Eddie Nketiah will feature for Leeds against Salford.
However, the only player that Bielsa has confirmed will start in the contest is Berardi.
“Berardi will play with some players who didn't play the previous game,” Bielsa said.
Berardi’s last appearance in a Leeds shirt ended in disaster, as he was sent off in the play-off semi-final.
The Swiss international lost his head in the most dramatic of fixture, and his lack of discipline was part of the reason why Leeds failed to make it to Wembley last term.
Berardi is now back from suspension, and he sat on the bench at the weekend, as Leeds drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest.
The 30-year-old will need a big performance tonight, as it is hard to see where he slots into Leeds’ starting line-up anymore.
Ben White has made an impressive start for Leeds at centre-back, while Luke Ayling appears to be Bielsa’s first choice right-back.
