Reds loan player could return

Sebastian LetoLiverpool’s Sebastian Leto, on loan with Olympiacos for this season, could be making a hastier return to Anfield after a training ground bust up with his Greek side.

The player was sent on loan after he was refused a work permit to play in the Premier League last summer.

According to reports Leto was angry at being left out of the weekend’s big clash against Greek rivals Panathinaiokos, and in the following training session was given a dressing down by the boss for refusing to train with the rest of the team.

In the ensuing training session the player is said to have started kicking balls wildly, and with one well aimed bit of shooting managed to get the club coach Ernesto Valverde.

The manager of the club issued the following statement:

“During yesterday’s training there was an issue with Sebastian Leto, which for the umpteenth time was a disciplinary offence – forcing me to send him to the dressing room.

“I have informed the administration about this particular incident, and it is now up to them to decide the action needed. As I have said in the past, discipline is a fundamental concern for the calmness of the team.”

Leto has completed more than 30 games for Olympiacos, a stipulation which Liverpool had ordered in his loan contract.

  1. I hope he does come back but only if he sorts out his attitude. Hes got potential to become a good winger and he would provide a bit of competition for Riera on the left. However if he cant sort his attitude out he could be a toxic influence in the dressing room so it would be a risk. Although it still wouldn’t solve the problem at right midfield although Benayoun has been in good form on that side recently.

  2. Can he play or does he still have a visa issue if he was to play here in the UK?

    I think the 30 games was a stipulant not just by Rafa but a condition for his work permit…

  3. Leto is a young good player. We cant let him go because hes had a funny five. Rafa needs to take him under his wing and he must learn from this mistake.

  4. I’m afraid i have to agree with their coach on that one, the kid needs disciplines. Having tantrum at a time like this is just idiotic. As an LFC supporter i don’t want to see him joining us at all. Besides we already have a left winger in Riera, sell him & use the combine money to buy D. Villa from Valencia or a decent overspecialized right winger
