Leeds youngster Kun Temenuzhkov has been named in the Guardian’s top 60 youngsters in world football. The ex-Barcelona kid, dubbed the “Bulgarian Bomber” in Catalonia joined Leeds during the summer in one of the most audacious swoops of Victor Orta’s reign since he took over recruitment at the club.
“Having spent three seasons at Barcelona’s La Masia academy before joining Leeds United’s under-23s on a free transfer this summer, Temenuzhkov is deservedly regarded as one of Bulgaria’s hottest football prospects. Growing up idolising Luis Suárez, the pint-sized prospect has shown the same predator’s instinct in the penalty area as the Uruguay striker. Last season his goals fired Barca’s Juvenil B team to the title, as he scored 30 goals in as many league games. Even though he received an invitation to play for Spain’s youth ranks, the Haskovo-born youngster chose to represent the country of his birth”
He has began playing for the under 23’s and has started scoring goals. He is certainly one that Leeds will be expecting to break into the first-team in the coming years with him coming with such a budding reputation from arguably the worlds biggest club. His pace and ability are not in any question but getting up to speed with the rough and tumble of the English leagues may take some time. He is certainly built to succeed at the football club and having him in the youth ranks is an exciting prospect.
