Leeds fans are purring over Mateusz Bogusz after Pole's solo goal for U23s

Andrea Radrizzani, Owner of Leeds United (3L) looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Bristol City and Leeds United at Ashton Gate on October 21, 2017 in Bristol, England.

The Leeds United Under-23 star is one of Victor Orta's latest discoveries.

Mateusz Bogusz of Poland takes a shot on goal during UEFA Under-17 Championship Elite Round Group 3 match between Poland and Republic of Ireland on March 27, 2018 in Legnica, Poland.

Matuesz Bogusz returned to Leeds United's starting XI for Monday's Under-23 team fixture at Crystal Palace.

And the January recruit from Ruch Chorzow rewarded his manager, Carlos Corberan, with a goal which looked to have given Leeds a 2-1 win at Selhurst Park until Kian Flanagan equalised shortly afterwards.

Bogusz collected a pass just inside the Palace half before beating a defender and charging towards goal, where he finished coolly past the Eagles' goalkeeper.


The fixture was the last of Leeds U23s' regular Professional Development League campaign, with play-off and Premier League Cup games now awaiting the Whites.

And while Bogusz will likely be booked in for those, some United fans are already backing him to make a first-team impact before too long.

This is what they're saying on Twitter...







Bogusz doesn't turn 18 until August but has already racked up 33 appearances at senior level - all for his previous club.

The Poland Under-20 international has signed a contract until June 2021 with Leeds.

Should Leeds blood Bogusz before the season's over?
