The Leeds United squad are currently settling into life in Australia as they step up their preparations for a friendly match against Manchester United on their pre-season tour.
The Whites touched down in the country over the weekend and they are now based in Perth as they await the opportunity to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on Wednesday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will then travel to Sydney to face Western Sydney in their final match of the tour, before they head back to Yorkshire in readiness for the Championship season to kick off.
Footage has now emerged of some of the Leeds squad undertaking free-kick practice in a recent training session on the tour, and one man particularly impressed with his effort.
Mateusz Bogusz is yet to feature in a Whites’ senior match, but he produced an excellent free-kick during the practice session which caught the eye of Leeds supporters.

Bogusz joined the club from Ruch Chorzow during the January window and was named in Bielsa’s match day squad four times towards the end of the season, while he was a regular feature for the Under 23s.
This is the latest sign that Leeds have unearthed a real talent in Bogusz as he continues to push for a spot in the first team. It appears Bogusz can offer a threat from direct set-pieces, and this is something the Whites were lacking at times last term.
The 17-year-old has already showcased his quality during the Under-23 side’s successful run last season, and Bielsa is clearly aware of his talent by including him in the senior squad’s tour to Australia.
I can see Bogusz making his breakthrough at Elland Road next season, as Leeds will be looking to freshen up their side slightly ahead of another promotion push. Furthermore, Bielsa has already shown his willingness to bring youth talent into the fold.
