Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has certainly not been afraid to use his talented pool of youngsters this season. The likes of Jack Clarke, Jamie Shackleton and Aapo Halme have all been given a chance this campaign.
At the weekend, as Leeds faced QPR in the FA Cup, another new name made his Leeds United first-team debut.
Kun Temenuzhkov came into proceedings with Leeds trailing to their Championship rivals. It was a debut that fans of Leeds have been waiting on for some time.
Signed from Barcelona in July 2017, the 18-year-old Bulgarian built up a fine reputation in the Leeds youth teams last season.
A diminutive goalscoring frontman he was compared in style to Luis Suarez by The Guardian when they placed him on their 2017 ‘Next Generation’ list, highlighting 60 of the top prospects in world football.
The teenager followed up his debut for Leeds with a brace against Hull City for the under-23s and he might just be in line for an exciting 2019 with Bielsa in charge.
Leeds United’s boss loves a tireless attacker and the teen fills that demographic. This might be the year that Temenuzhkov takes off at Leeds United.
