Leeds United sensation Lewis Cook is so good he is scary, raves Karl Robinson

MK Dons boss impressed with Lewis Cook.

MK Dons earned a point away to Leeds United on Saturday, in a game they could so easily have won.

Only a late equaliser through an own goal prevented them coming away with all three points, but manager Karl Robinson was impressed with the performance of the home team.

He was especially taken with impressive Leeds youngster Lewis Cook, going on to describe his potential as scary.

He told OneMK: "What a footballer Lewis Cook is and he is as talented as I've seen in a long time.

"Fair to play to them for putting on a number of young players towards the end of the game and I love that.

"I love seeing young kids come through and flourish and clubs the like of Leeds United when the academy system and the development system has been fantastic for so many years and successful. He scared me!"

Cook, 18, is in his second full season at Leeds, and is a must pick in their midfield.

Robinson's comments should carry more weight that typical praise, because he is the manager who up until last season was working with Dele Alli, before he was sold to Tottenham. The midfielder is now excelling in the Premier League, and recently scored for England against France. 

Leeds will be hoping to hang onto him for a long time, as the main thought about Lewis Cook which is scary at Elland Road, is the prospect of being without him.
