Leeds United under 18’s swept aside more opposition today, battering Hull City 5-1. They are top of the pile in their section and have gone on a run that shows no sign of letting up anytime soon. Bulgarian striker Kun Temenuzhkov bagged another brace as he finds his feet at Leeds United, one of the hottest properties signed in the summer.
Theo Hudson, Bobby Kamwa and Alfie McCalmont also scored as skipper Ryan Edmondson and his side crushed Hull who didn’t really have an answer. Despite not scoring Edmondson was in the thick of things yet again, bullying the Hull defenders who simply couldn’t cope with what Leeds were throwing at them. A couple of the goals were eye-catching to say the least and the others were very well worked. Kun, known as the “Bulgarian Bomber” from his time at Barcelona enjoyed his day, scoring his third and fourth goals in three games, adding to his tally that just keeps on rising this season.
The youngster joined from Barcelona in the summer although there was interest from a variety of clubs including Premier League. He was a controversial player because of the circumstances in which he agreed to join Barcelona, moving to the club at such a young age, the deal was investigated but was ratified in the end. He was a key player in their youth teams but the idea of potential first-team football much sooner seems to have pulled him to west Yorkshire and he isn’t the only one, joined by team-mates Oriol Rey and Adrian Balboa who are both playing for the under 23’s. Kun started there but was moved back down to help him develop, a good move by the club.
