With a pleasing victory for Leeds United as they opened up their pre-season campaign on Wednesday against York City, summer signing Rafa Mujica was one of the players that caught the eye of many.
The 20-year-old Spanish attacker was one of the raft of changes manager Marcelo Bielsa made in the second half of the game as he spread the match minutes around and with high expectations following his arrival at Elland Road this summer, he certainly backed up that promise with an assured performance.
Having won the game 5-0 with a brace from Jack Harrison and further efforts from Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw, many fans will have been pleased to see so many youngsters take their chance to make a mark this early in pre-season as we all know our ambitions for a second year under our Argentine gaffer.
Taking to social media after the match, he certainly came in for some strong praise.
Made some great runs mate, keep going ????????

Was very impressed with our youngsters last night mate! Thought they showed great maturity and confidence as a unit playing the Bielsa system and looked very comfortable on the ball with great energy and purpose both defensively and in attack. We have some great prospects
