'Special player': Marsch told he has a 20-year-old in his Leeds ranks who's an absolute 'wizard'
Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville delivered an impressive display for the Under-21s on Friday night.
Michael Skubala’s charges took on Southampton’s U21s at Elland Road, in front of over 10,000 fans.
Liam Cooper, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo and Patrick Bamford all started for Leeds.
Wilfried Gnonto, who signed for the Whites on deadline day, was also in the starting XI.
With such a strong line-up, Leeds unsurprisingly ran out 6-2 winners.
And despite so many high-profile names, it was Summerville who caught the eye above all.
Skubala, speaking to Leeds Live after the match, sung the 20-year-old’s praises.
“Cry in possession, he’s a wizard sometimes,” he said.
“He’s quick and he can open things up and he’s a special player.
“So I thought he was pulling into possession tonight.”
Leeds Live themselves also loved what they saw the 20-year-old in their write up of the game.
“Clearly too good for this level,’ they wrote.
‘He bullied Southampton’s left-back all night with his ball control and skill.
‘Scored Leeds’ second of the game with a smart finish before winning the penalty that led to Bamford’s second of the game.’
Arguably one of the best compliments a young player can receive is that he’s too good for a particular level.
Summerville has very much outgrown Premier League 2, and it’ll be exciting to see how he continues to fare for Jesse Marsch’s side.
