Fede Bessone said he's disappointed to be leaving Swansea City but he just couldn't turn down the offer to join Leeds United.
The Argentinian Left Back is the second player in recent weeks to leave the club after his contract expired to join a rival Championship side.
Bessone follows Leon Britton through the Liberty Stadium exit door which has raised concerns amongst the fans as to why few players are willing to sign new contracts at the club.
ede 'disappointed' that Swans time is over
osted on: Thu 17 Jun 2010
Fede Bessone has expressed his disappointment at his Swansea City exit but is excited by the challenge ahead at Leeds.
The Argentinean left-back agreed terms with the Elland Road club yesterday and will officially sign on July 1.
It brought his two-year stint in south west Wales to an end as he penned a three-year deal with the newly promoted side.
'I have to say I am disappointed that my time at Swansea is over. I have really enjoyed my time there,'
'It has been a huge learning process at Swansea and we went so close to getting into the play-offs.
'It was very difficult for me to leave the club, but when Leeds came in I just couldn't turn the chance down.
'They are very ambitious and they want to get back to where they were not so long ago. It wasn't that long ago they were in the Champions League semi-final. The club will want to have a good attempt of getting into the Premier League, so it is going to be an interesting year, although it is a very difficult division.'
"At Swansea there is a great team spirit while Paulo is a good manager and I thank him for improving my game — he deserves a lot of credit,"
"But I must say thank you to the fans. The first year was difficult for me but the fans were very good to me.
"Last season was excellent for me because I played many games and also scored the winner against Derby.
"But I remember at Sheffield Wednesday last season the fans were chanting 'Argentina, Argentina' during the warm-up and I'll never forget that.
"I hope to get a good reception when I come back to Swansea next season. I'm sure the club will again be in a strong position to get a play-off spot.
"Swansea will remain in my mind and the fans in my heart forever."
