Luton boss Edwards delighted with Mengi impact: Really impressive

Luton boss Rob Edwards is delighted with the impact of Teden Mengi.

Edwards talked up the former Manchester United defender ahead of today's clash with Brentford.

He said: “We really believed in him, that's why we brought him to the football club.

"For him to be showing the levels that he is already, it's really impressive and I'm really pleased obviously. He's a brilliant, brilliant guy who's got an unbelievable focus, a real desire to show people and maybe to prove to people as well. What he's shown and what I'm really pleased with is just his consistency, his attitude around the place.

"He's not fazed by anything and I thought last week, I know he got the goal, so that always brings a few more headlines around him, but his all-round performance was brilliant, brilliant. His desire to defend, his duels, he's getting better week on week.

"I don't want to put too much pressure on him as he's a young player still and I think it's important we all recognise, like all of us, we're going to have ups and downs, but his level at the moment has been brilliant and we're really, really pleased with him."
