The Swiss full-back, signed from Italian outfit Sampdoria in July 2014, is rapidly earning cult hero status at Elland Road for his commitment to the cause in the face of several injury setbacks.

Berardi, who is equally as comfortable playing on the right or the left, endured a testing start to life in English football and was sent off on his United debut, but the defender’s solid performances have established him as a key figure in the side and earned him a Player of the Year nomination last season.

Berardi twice won the play-offs during his time in Serie B – with Brescia and Sampdoria.
