Marcelo Bielsa impressed by Leeds youngster Mateusz Bogusz

Marcelo Bielsa has explained Leeds United youngster Mateusz Bogusz needs more games before being fully assessed, but has delivered a positive verdict on him.

The 17-year-old only completed a move to Elland Road back in January from Ruch Chrorzow and has been playing with the Whites youth team.

Leeds’ Under-23s side drew with Crystal Palace on Tuesday and Bogusz completed 90 minutes in that game.

The central midfielder got on the scoresheet too with a left-footed finish inside the penalty area and has been a regular in the team.

“He’s (Bogusz) a very young player. He has played a few games only. You need to use some analysis. But analysis you cannot do in some moments. He had a good performance in the last game,” Bielsa said in his press conference, as cited by Yorkshire Evening Post.

TBR’s View:


Bogusz is a rising talent at Leeds that some fans are quite excited about and his performances at youth level have even seen some shouting for a first-team call-up.

There is certainly no fear from Bielsa to bring inexperienced teenagers into the fold, but with just four league games remaining and the club vying for automatic promotion it seems unlikely now.

The creative midfielder is certainly one to keep an eye on moving forward and could slot into the Mateusz Klich role in the first team later down the line.

Leeds do have a wave of quality youngsters at their disposal which Bielsa has already tapped into and Jack Clarke is the outstanding example.
