Leeds United fans have been reacting to footage that has emerged of Dutch midfielder Crysencio Summerville over the weekend.

The side put in a rather dominating display as they continued their pre-season work with a comfortable 4-0 victory over their Manchester counterparts.

One of the goals was scored by the 19-year-old Dutchman, who controlled a long ball over the top and shrugged off his defender before firing the ball high into the net.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

And when the footage was shown to them by @leedsutdacademy, there were plenty of them who were left rather excited, with some of them hoping to see him make the break into the senior side before too long:

movement touch and strength there, I like it a lot”

“He’s going to be a superstar”
“Has to be making the squads now surely”
“Summerville may just be the answer to the wing position. From what we’ve seen from him in pre-season he looks more than good enough to step up. So agile and tricky with pace and not afraid to take a player on. Would rather spend all the money we have on a midfielder/10”
“This guy is ripping it up isn’t he? Looks like a huge talent”

Do you think Summerville should be in the first team squad this season?





The midfielder has a glowing reputation from his time in the Netherlands, with former England defender Chris Powell once describing him as a ‘bag of tricks’, and with skills like this on show, surely it’s only a matter of time before he makes his way into the first team at Elland Road.
