Inside Futbol (IF): Mirco, what do you remember about your English experience?


Mirco Antenucci (MA): It was a good experience, even if the results weren’t very good.


For me it was a school of life, my first daughter was born in England.


I love the Leeds fans, it was a relationship of mutual respect, it was wonderful, they appreciated my attachment to the shirt.



IF: Why did you choose Leeds United?


MA: It was an opportunity to go to England. I have always loved their football, their culture, their style. The choice was very simple.


Leeds remains in my heart.



IF: Are you still following Leeds?


MA: Sure! I’m not surprised that the Whites are doing very well.


They have an extraordinary coach, because Marcelo Bielsa is an innovator, he is a football master.


I knew they would have a great start in the Premier League.



IF: Who do you feel will win the Premier League this season?


MA: I believe Liverpool, despite the injuries to [Joe] Gomez and [Virgil] van Dijk.


The Reds remain the best team in England.


But I hope that people will return to the stadiums soon, because without the fans the Premier League is not the same.
