Mirco Antenucci: Out of contract at Leeds

Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci admits he would like to stay at the club beyond the expiry of his contract at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old signed a two-year deal with the club after joining the Whites for an undisclosed fee from Italian side Ternana in the summer of 2014.

He has since gone on to score 15 league goals in 52 games for the club, but is a popular figure among fans and has been one of the better signings the club has made from Italy under the ownership of the controversial Massimo Cellino.

But with his deal set to expire at the end of the season, the Italian forward has told BBC Radio Leeds he’d very much love to stay at Elland Road.

“I’d like a new deal but it is not my decision. Now I have to play with good quality for the team and wait for the call,” he said.

“I don’t worry about it. I am focussed on my work and I don’t think about the contract.”

Leeds have won their last two matches to move up to 15th in the table and the forward thinks he is benefitting from starting every match since Steve Evans replaced Uwe Rosler last month.

“I am the happiest I have been because I am playing more and that is better for me,” he added.

“You can do a lot of things differently because you have more time and opportunities to show your quality.”

Leeds face Rotherham, now managed by former head coach Neil Redfearn, on Saturday.

    So the guy is 31 years of age, can’t or won’t head the ball, can’t or won’t pass the ball and gets the odd goal here and there. Hmmm. My head says we need better than this.

    I agree with Phoenix, I think we can do much better! Antenucci is not exactly setting the world alight is he? Compared to the goals Becchio got the last half season he played for us! In fact, I’d rather have Becchio back who is the same age.
