Leeds United ace Mateusz Klich was left furious with Daniel James during their big win on the weekend in the Premier League.
That is according to journalist Beren Cross of Leeds Live who was reporting from the press box for the Whites’ victory over Norwich City.
Are you confident LUFC will stay up?
Leeds left it late to seal the points, however, they now find themselves four points ahead of 18th-placed Watford having played the same number of games.
However, it was apparent tension was high during the game at Elland Road with their Polish midfielder, Klich, left furious by James’ decision making in front of goal:
“In the 63rd minute, long before the madness of the match’s conclusion, Daniel James got free and went on one of his jet-heeled dribbles through the heart of the pitch,” Cross wrote for Leeds Live.
“He went by a couple of Norwich players, but rather than slide in the overlapping Mateusz Klich, into space, he shot at goal.
“The Poland international, despite the obviously decent play James had created, went berserk at the winger for not putting it on a plate for him.”
TIF Thoughts on Cross’ comments…
James has not exactly been prolific in front of goal this season with just the four goals in his 27 Premier League games to date (via Transfermarkt).
So there is little surprise Klich was left frustrated with the 24-year-old who were just one goal to the good at the time and another could have seriously put a Norwich comeback in doubt.
There was an awful lot riding on this game for Leeds and if it was not for a late goal from Joe Gelhardt then this moment could have easily come back to haunt James.
