The situation regarding Mateusz Klich kind of represents our season. We let him go, a poor decision and he’s playing brilliant in Holland as we struggle with players who could really use the help. I say playing, the season is now over for Leeds and I think everyone is relieved. Klich is coming back according to the man himself and personally I’m delighted he’ll be getting a fresh start.

Klich on Leeds return. (from via Dutch newspaper interview)

“I have spoken with them, they want me back.”

“The chance that I return is 99%, almost 100%. I still have a two-year contract.”

“I have unfinished business there.”

Many Leeds fans will be very happy to hear the news because the truth is we didn’t really get to see Klich get into his stride at Leeds and when he did play it was normally very impressive. He started one game at Cardiff, slipped, didn’t make a mistake he literally slipped and cost us a goal and barely kicked a ball after that, Thomas Christiansen choosing to play the likes of Conor Shaughnessy in front of him in central midfield. Klich then got into some issues on social media, liking tweets regarding himself and Christiansen and then come January he was shipped out.

Klich headed to FC Utrecht where he hit the ground running, his latest performances included a man of the match followed by the only goal at the weekend to help the side finish 5th in the Eridivisie. Klich is a talented player, nobody is disputing that and perhaps a full pre-season will be the key to unlock his potential in a Leeds shirt. The Polish midfielder played 45 minutes before picking up an injury at the start of last summer and didn’t feature until the final game of pre-season, he didn’t really recover because it seemed like Christiansen was set on playing O’Kane and Phillips whatever happened after the season started.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
