4 goals in 4 games - Leeds signing Montenegro shows he has to be given a chance

Brian Montenegro scored twice as Leeds under-21s recorded a 6-0 win.

Leeds United's under-21 side racked up an impressive 6-0 win in front of an Elland Road crowd on Monday night.

While a first goal for Brazilian wonderkid Adryan will no doubt receive plenty of praise, it is a fellow South American who is building arguably an even more impressive case for first team involvement.

Paraguayan forward Brian Montenegro signed for the club on loan on deadline day, and has been a consistent goalscorer for the under-21 side over the past month.

His two goals in three games record became four in four last night, and it is hard to see Leeds holding him back from the first team for much longer.

Montengro scored the first and last goal of the game last night, and was a force even late on in attempting to carve out chances for his teammates.

Capable of playing up front or as a winger, the ability to play wide presents an option which Leeds simply have not got enough of at present.

With only one goal scored in four games, the case for leaving him out, is far harder to build than a reason to give him a chance.
