MOT View: Major Monday moment proves Bielsa must hand Leeds sensation more minutes

  • by

Crysencio Summerville has scored his first goal for the Dutch Under-21s, and this suggests he has a big future at Leeds United.

The 20-year-old made his debut for the Netherlands on the 12th, and he followed that up with a goal in just his second appearance, and this is exciting [Leeds United Live].

Summerville emerged over the summer ahead of Ian Poveda, and his form in pre-season forced Marcelo Bielsa to make a decision, and Poveda went out on loan.

This has meant Summerville has been the fourth-choice winger in Bielsa’s side, and he has featured in the Premier League four times.

Now, though he hasn’t done too much in those games, he has proven himself worthy of a first-team spot, which is good enough given his age.

This latest moment in Summerville’s career is important, and it shows that he is continuing to rise and rise, and hopefully, he is going to have a long and successful career at Elland Road.

Certainly, he has the raw talent to make it and judging by the way he seems to be improving game by game, he has the right attitude as well, which is huge.

Now, though this goal was only for the Dutch Under-21s, it is another leap forward in Summerville’s career.

Of course, the Whites are out of the Carabao Cup, so he can’t show his skills off in that competition, but the Premier League is about to grow very congested, and the FA Cup is on the way as well.

So there should be plenty more first-team opportunities around the corner for a player who looks to have a big future ahead – he can no longer be left on the bench as must as he is.
