Leeds United’s Mirco Antenucci on key to success next season

Mirco Antenucci

Leeds United forward Mirco Antenucci has scored 10 goals in the Championship so far this season.

Leeds United forward Mirco Antenucci has told Fox Sports that next season’s success will depend on how the club reinforce in the summer transfer window.

The Whites have virtually nothing to play for the remainder of this season, as they are safe from relegation from the Championship and are too far from the playoff spots.

As with every season, Leeds will be looking to push for promotion to the Premier League in the 2015-16 campaign, but Antenucci is not getting carried away.

The 30-year-old, who has scored 10 goals and created 21 chances in 32 Championship appearances so far this campaign, has said that he is not thinking about any personal goals for next season.

“For next year, I do not want to put specific goals on a personal level,” the Italian told Fox Sports. “As a team, we will see. A lot depends on how we reinforce.”

Leeds have a good squad, but they do need players who can make them better and help them challenge for the playoffs.

A number of players in Neil Redfearn’s squad, such as forward Edgar Cani, are not going to be of much help next season.

If the West Yorkshire outfit can carefully plan out their transfers in the summer and make the right signings, then under Redfearn, they can certainly aim for a top-six finish in the Championship in 2015-16.
