Who is Temenuzhkov?

When it comes to the Leeds reserves, there will be no shortage of talent as the club is built around such a reputation.

Temenuzhkov has already made waves at one of Europe’s best in FC Barcelona.

The Bulgarian caught everyone’s interest when he made it to the list of the sixty best young talents in the world, in 2017.

The teenager joined the LUFC academy in 2017 and has progressed through the ranks, eventually getting his main team call up in 2019 in a FA Cup match.

Following that, he has been a regular for the U-23 side which is currently topping the Professional development League table.

Since the odds are low for breaking into the main team for the side which is chasing promotion, the Bulgarian dubbed as ‘Kun’ believes his hard work could yield him success any time soon.

The 19-year-old has posted a photo on his Instagram handle with and inspiring quote which reads, “A dream doesn’t come true magically, it needs sweat, determination and hard work.”


Marcelo Bielsa, the Whites manager, has attained the reputation for nurturing young talents from his club’s U-23 squad and Kun could soon be a part of his plans.
