Luis Sinisterra posts one-word reaction to 19-year-old Leeds United player after ‘top drawer’ performance

Although performances haven’t been great from Leeds United’s first-team recently, their under-21s are playing brilliantly.

They won 4-2 away to Middlesbrough in the Premier League 2 yesterday to remain top of the table.

The victory was inspired by a fantastic performance from striker Mateo Joseph Fernandez.

The 19-year-old forward scored his third hat-trick of the season, taking his tally to 12 goals in all competitions.

The Spanish-born striker is one of several young forwards trying to get the attention of first-team manager Jesse Marsch.

Fernandez did play for Marsch during pre-season, but hasn’t been involved in the first team this season.

However, Fernandez’s performance yesterday did catch the eye of winger Luis Sinisterra.

Fernandez took to Instagram after the match to celebrate his side’s win.

He said: “Great performance of the team today! And I’m very happy for the goals.

“This is thanks to the good work of my teammates.”

Sinisterra reacted to Fernandez’s performance, simply calling him a ‘killer’, referring to his deadly scoring ability.

Leeds have been struggling in front of goal this season, scoring just 11 goals in the league so far.

Rodrigo Moreno has been unable to replicate his brilliant start to the season since returning from injury.

Patrick Bamford is yet to open his account in this campaign, but Tyler Adams was pleased with his performance against Arsenal despite missing a penalty.

Leeds also brought in young forward Wilfried Gnonto this summer, and Marsch has said ‘he’s been fantastic’ since his arrival.

Marsch is likely to stick with Bamford for the foreseeable to see if he can play his way into form.

His previous scoring record in the Premier League shows he’s capable of doing it.

However, the American manager could give Fernandez a first-team opportunity soon given his impressive form.

The 19-year-old was described as ‘top drawer’ after his hat-trick yesterday by coach Michael Skubala.

Sinisterra was clearly impressed with Fernandez’s performance judging by his reaction on Instagram.
