Leeds United starlet Kun Temenuzhkov scored a goal for the Under-23s last night.
Some Leeds United fans on Twitter are getting excited about Kun Temenuzhkov’s potential.
The Bulgarian striker scored last night as Leeds Under-23s went down 2-1 to Southampton in the Premier League cup.
Kun, who joined the Elland Road side from Barcelona in 2017, expertly controlled a superb long ball from Hugo Diaz, before keeping his composure to slot home.
The 18-year-old helped United’s Under-18 side to a divisional title last season and also scored goals for the Under 23s, capping an excellent first year in England.
Here’s how Leeds fans reacted to his latest goal:

Cheers. Hope he gets a few games for the senior team so we can have a bit of a look of his style of play even if it means coming off the bench.— George Macpherson (@GeorgeMacphers1) October 5, 2018
That’s an absolute quality ball and finish— ASW (@Awi1co) October 5, 2018
Playing for Marcelo Bielsa’s first team this season seems unlikely.
But that being said, the Argentine coach, who is missing Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford, only has one fit striker in the form of Tyler Roberts.
If something were to happen to the Wales international then Bielsa would have to scour the youth ranks for some prospects and the former Barca talent might well fancy his chances.
