The situation regarding the talented Polish midfielder Mateusz Klich finally has some meat on the bones because he has explained what has happened to a Dutch news outlet and it is for the exact reason we thought. Klich said he was promised to play in a side to play football and Christiansen lost sight of that before dropping him because he slipped.

Klich on Christiansen

“In the midfield I slipped and lost the ball, after which we conceded a goal. Then the coach refused to pick me, because of one mistake that I couldn’t do much about. I became very angry with him after that and it was over for me for Leeds. I wouldn’t play anymore under that coach.”
“When I came to Leeds, the technical director told me that we would play well. But when we had a bad period after a good start, we threw everything overboard. Suddenly we played typical Championship football and that doesn’t suit me, I belong in a team that wants to have the ball.”
“I am looking forward to a new opportunity at Leeds, which I will also get. My contract runs for another two years and the club wants me back. For the new trainer I am like a new purchase, I can prove myself again.”
“The level I can handle, I know that for sure. Especially now that I have become more mature in my game. The most important thing is that I get the chance to play a few matches. I want to show myself in Leeds. And if that doesn’t work? Yes, then maybe I’ll come back to the Eredivisie one more time.”

This is the exact attitude we need from players like Klich who is clearly talented enough to play in this league. This was probably Thomas Christiansen’s single biggest mistake at Leeds United, that and putting Stuart Dallas up front on his own after we scored to get a goal back at home to Cardiff. Klich showed exactly what he was capable of in the game at Burnley and now in the Dutch top division and Leeds will be getting what will seem like a new signing. I think Klich could make a massive difference to the side and now he has Adam Forshaw in the middle as well it can only mean we are stronger.

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.
