Leeds United: Pundit reacts to disagreement between Klich and Marsch

Sky Sports pundit and former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson has claimed that there will only ever be one winner whilst arguing with a manager after Mateusz Klich was spotted in a tense conversation with Jesse Marsch.

Klich was dragged off at half-time against Crystal Palace on Monday night and Leeds went on to draw the game, which was their fifth successive game unbeaten in the Premier League.

The Pole has been a mainstay in the Leeds United side this season, as he has featured 28 times for the Whites in the Premier League and has been one of the few players at the club who has not suffered from serious injury and sidelined for a lengthy period.

After footage emerged of the pair arguing midway through the first half against Palace, Robinson highlighted to MOT Leeds News that the player is always going to come second best.

“If there was a disagreement between a player and a manager, there’s only ever one winner.

“It’s not the first time we’ve seen a player hauled off much to his disapproval. But if he’s arguing with the manager and not carrying out the instructions the manager wants, there’s only one winner because at the end of the day, if the team doesn’t win, it’s the manager’s head that’s on the block.

“The manager makes the decisions and if the team on the field aren’t carrying out his tactics or orders, then it will be to the players’ detriment. If that was the case, that’s what we saw against Palace.”

TIF Thoughts on Paul Robinson’s comments…

Klich has been somewhat out of form this season for Leeds. In the Premier League for his side, he is ranked 21st in terms of highest average player rating (6.69), has the 11th-most accurate passes per game (23.8) and is ranked 13th in terms of tackles made per game (1.3), as per SofaScore.

So, even though there has been footage of Klich and Marsch arguing, he may be dropped from the side for his poor performances and the argument displayed may just be another reason for the American boss to leave him out of the side.
