Leeds United fans may not know all that much about Young Boys star Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu, but he has just helped take down rivals Manchester United.
The Red Devils headed to Switzerland for their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday evening.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener put United on their way, but it all went from for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off, Ngamaelu equalised and Jesse Lingard managed to set up Theoson Siebatcheu for the winner.
United were left embarrassed, managing just two shots on target against a Swiss side – and Ngamaleu played a big part.
Leeds’ interest in Ngamaleu
Back in April, TEAMtalk reported that Leeds were keen to bring Ngamaleu to Elland Road. Everton and Rangers were also keen.
Ngamaleu, 27, possesses blistering speed and the ability to play on either flank.
With four goals and eight assists last season, Ngamaleu helped Young Boys win the league title.
Ngamaleu had more shots than anybody last night. Remarkably, he completed seven dribbles. Everybody else on he pitch managed seven combined.
Ngamaleu didn’t get that move to Leeds, but he showed his quality last night – and at least gave Whites fans a laugh at United’s expense.
Will Leeds go back in for Ngamaleu?
It seems a little unlikely right now.
Leeds have just signed a new winger by finally luring Daniel James to Elland Road from Manchester United.
Marcelo Bielsa already has Jack Harrison and Raphinha at his disposal. There are also high hopes for Ian Carlo Poveda moving forward.
Turning 28 next summer, Ngamaleu to Leeds may never happen now, but other Premier League teams may be wise to take a look at the Cameroonian ace.
