Bellusci comments on Leeds move: 'The best choice of my life'

The 25-year-old Italian has no regrets over his summer switch to Elland Road.

Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci says moving to Elland Road this summer was 'the best choice' of his life.

The 25-year-old centre-back, who left Catania for Leeds ahead of the current campaign, says 'there was a spark' when his agent proposed the move to the Championship side.

And the Italian says the decision was the best of his life, while he admits he is trying to improve his English in order to communicate better with his team-mates.

"When my agent proposed the transfer to me in the summer, there was a spark - the best choice of my life," Bellusci is quoted as telling Italian newspaper Tuttosport by Leeds' official website.

"On the field I found a game based on dynamism and aggression, my own characteristics.

"Off the field, the language is a barrier but I’m improving. Us Italians are planning to attend together. I have never felt so at ease on an English field."

Bellusci scored Leeds' equaliser during their 1-1 Yorskhire derby draw with Sheffield Wednesday. Darko Milanic's side travel to Rotherham for their next league game - at 7.45pm this Friday night.
