Leeds United exited the FA Cup in the third round courtesy of their 2-1 defeat at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday afternoon.
To be honest, the competition is not high on the club’s list of priorities this season, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side have now lost their last three in all competitions.
A number of young players were given valuable minutes, however, and there was also a debut for 18-year-old Kun Temenuzhkov.
The Bulgarian replaced Tom Pearce in the 79th minute of the match and showed his potential with some nice touches in the latter stages of the clash.
Temenuzhkov joined Leeds from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 and looks to have a bright future having impressed in his team’s academy system.
The Leeds fans were disappointed with the result against QPR, but the fact that one of the club’s outstanding teenagers was given some action went down well.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
