“I did not have a good relationship with the coach”. That are the words of a player who was bought for just under £2 million, a Polish international footballer who wasn’t given a chance at Leeds United. The odd cup game, one Championship start, a slip and out he went. It’s just a shame he left a couple of weeks before Christiansen got the sack.
“Of the matches I played, I know that I can handle the level of the Championship”
“He (Christiansen) happened to be fired after the defeat against Cardiff. What has happened between us? I do not want to go into details too much”
“It’s only frustrating when you know you can handle the level, but do not get the chance to show it”
“I know this competition and a now know that I am doing well here (Holland)”
“In any case, it is not new to me. I love to play football and I’m here to play a lot of matches again.”
“That is also necessary, because I will probably return to Leeds United in the summer, where my contract runs until 2020.”
I tend to agree with what Klich has said. He never got a fair chance in the team and that makes it all the worse because the likes of Eunan O’Kane and Kalvin Phillips have had a dip in form that has lasted months rather than weeks. Adam Forshaw has already proved he’s a better option than any of the midfielders in their current form but Klich never had the chance to prove that. He did tweet some things about Christiansen after the pair had fallen out but it seems like Christiansen was willing to lose his job rather than swap the team around, and Klich was a prime example of him not giving players a chance.
Since the sacking of Christiansen it has become obvious that things were poor behind the scenes. He had a serious lack of leadership skills according to owner Andrea Radrizzani which was clear for us all to see and the job was to big for him, again, clear to see and again pointed out by the owner. Klich will hopefully return to Leeds and fight for his place but I can’t see all of the midfielders hanging around. I think either Eunan O’Kane or Matty Klich will leave the club in the summer, and Yosuke Ideguchi is set to arrive, he is still settling in at Cultural Leonesa but there is little doubt Leeds will want him back at the club for pre-season. Interesting times ahead.
