Tony Dorigo raves about Leeds' 'absolute talent' Mateusz Bogusz

Mateusz Bogusz has been enhancing his reputation at Leeds United in recent months.

Tony Dorigo has told a podcast on LS11 that he is excited by Leeds United talent Mateusz Bogusz.

The 17-year-old midfielder offered glimpses into his huge potential by impressing on the Whites' pre-season tour of Australia.

The Poland youth international, who joined Leeds in January, also scored his first goal for the club when he found the net in a win over Western Sydney Wanderers last month.

It was a thumping first-time finish from just inside the box, but former Leeds star Dorigo, who works for LUTV, says that the youngster also might be something of a free-kick specialist.

 

He told a podcast on LS11: "Bogusz on the pre-season trip, I had a close look at him in training. Jesus, he scored a couple of free kicks and I'll tell you what, that lad has got talent. Absolute talent."

It does seem like Bogusz has a chance of making his senior Leeds debut this season.

If Marcelo Bielsa didn't fancy him, he wouldn't have taken to Australia. Yes he's only 17, but then again so was Jack Clarke last season and it didn't stop the Argentine coach from believing in him and playing him.

There's a lot of competition for midfield places at Elland Road, but Bogusz, going by what we've seen in pre-season, could at least find himself being a squad player this season, which would represent huge progress.
