Mirco Antenucci insists he has no regrets about moving to Leeds United

Leeds United East Stand

Mirco Antenucci has scored four goals in his last four appearances for Leeds United.

Mirco Antenucci has told Italian website Ternana News that he does not regret moving to Leeds United.

Antenucci made the switch to Leeds from Cantania in the summer of 2014, and his time at Elland Road has been rather mixed so far.

The 31-year-old has had spells of brilliant form, combined with periods of time where he has struggled to make an impact.

Antenucci insists that he does not regret making a move to Leeds, though, and he says that he’s very happy at the Yorkshire club.

“I did not think twice,” Antenucci said, about his move to Leeds. “True they are a Championship side, but Leeds is a historic club with many fans who are very passionate, I believed it was a good opportunity. And today, two years later, I do not regret at all, in fact: we're very well me and my family, and then the Championship is an incredible competition.”

Antenucci was linked with a move back to Italy in the January transfer window, but he remained with Leeds and his form since has been very impressive.

The forward has netted four times in his last four appearances, and forced his way into Steve Evans’ starting line-up.

Antenucci’s place looks set to come under threat in the coming weeks, though, as Chris Wood is close to making a return from injury.

Antenucci’s future is also still up in the air, as the experienced striker’s contract expires in the summer, and no new deal has been offered to him yet.
