Leeds United fans will be left incredibly impressed after footage emerged from Thorp Arch of a stunning training ground volley.
Posted on Instagram by Mateo Joseph Fernandez, the ball is controlled in expert fashion before being smashed home, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance. It is the type of goal that those at Elland Road will dream of seeing in the Premier League next season.
They don’t have to wait too long for the season to get underway now, either, with the campaign kicking off as soon as August 5, before Leeds play against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 6 to kick off their season.
Jesse Marsch will be hoping to see his side get off to the perfect start by defeating Wolves on the opening day, and sending a statement to a club in a similar position, in the process. They’ve certainly made improvements this summer – signing six new players; now they must take advantage of a good summer.
One thing that is for sure, though, is that Marsch would love nothing more than to see Leeds’ work and wonder goals from the training ground replicated in domestic action.

TIF Thoughts on Leeds United..
With six new arrivals coming in for a combined cost of £97.78 million this summer, Leeds will hope to have done enough to avoid a relegation scrap in the coming season. They’ve shown their ambition to do so this summer. The goal must now be to get off to a good start in the forthcoming Premier League campaign, which begins against Wolves.
With the Whites still yet to bring in another striker this summer, it seems they are going to be relying of Patrick Bamford to maintain his fitness and the support of Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood.
However, there may another youngster in the mix for some game time this season with Fernandez demonstrating his skills in training which will surely have caught the attention of the Leeds fanbase.

Yeah. Saw similar by Bamford…and look what happened after
I watch a bit of MLS and seeing the Leeds connection I have become increasingly worried for the upcoming season. To be honest the MLS is pretty grim watching everyone tries but it’s very amateurish, like watching paint dry and if this is now the Elland road standard we are in for a terrible year. We have a manager who managed to kept us up only by the skin of his teeth by virtue of the injured players returning, all the new signings are not really an improvement on the U 23’s who we have given up on and in some cases are a step backwards. I really am worried about premiership survival, hope I am wrong but what I watch here is usually sub championship quality.
