Former Leeds United goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald has told the German media the last three months in England haven’t been easy for him.
This week the 28 year old returned to Germany, signing for Frankfurt as their second choice goalkeeper.
Speaking to Bild, Wiedwald was asked about his time at Leeds United: “The last three months haven’t been easy. If you are playing in the Bundesliga a year ago and you are no longer desired in a second division, that is unfortunate.
“Nevertheless, I learned a lot during that time. I’ve mastered the language perfectly now.”
Wiedwald signed for Leeds United on a three year deal last summer after it became apparent he had no future at Werder Bremen.
The German keeper started the season in decent form as Leeds United topped the Championship table early on, helped by a number of clean sheets.
However, a series of mistakes resulted in Andy Lonergan being made first choice at Leeds United, but that didn’t work out either.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell finished the season as the club’s No.1 which meant there wasn’t even a place for Wiedwald on the bench.
Frankfurt’s new signing made 28 leagues appearances last season for Leeds United, but didn’t figure after the game with Middlesbrough at the start of March.
