Leeds United: Journalist casts doubt over experienced midfielder’s future

David Anderson of the Daily Mirror has cast doubts over the future of Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich.

The 31-year-old struggled at times last season, as the Poland international was in and out of the side towards the latter months, while he looked to have clashed with manager Jesse Marsch during the club’s draw with Crystal Palace in April which appeared to encapsulate what was a poor campaign for most concerned at Elland Road.

Anderson believes he hasn’t done enough to secure his future at Elland Road, telling GiveMeSport when asked if Klich’s future is in doubt: “I’d say so. He hasn’t quite done it, and don’t forget he’s someone that’s been singled out by the fans for abuse on social media. Remember after the Chelsea defeat just before Christmas, and he actually hit back at them, which isn’t what you really want to see.

“You look around that dressing room, and I think someone like Klich, he’s willing enough and he’s trying, but he’s just not really delivering.”

With Marsch looking to make the Leeds side into his own this summer ahead of his first full season in charge, too, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see significant changes made.

So far, the Yorkshire club have welcomed both Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen for a combined fee of just over £40m.

TIF Thoughts on Mateusz Klich…

Into his 30s and coming off the back of a disappointing season, Klich’s place in the Leeds squad was always going to be at risk. Of course, pre-season could change that, but, as things stand, the exit door could loom.

With just two years left on his contract, too, now would be the perfect time to move the Poland midfielder on. According to Transfermarkt, Klich is currently valued at just £3.6 million, making him a potential bargain for a whole host of clubs around Europe if that value is anything to go by.

Whilst he may be considered surplus to requirements at Elland Road, Klich is an experienced player to become an asset elsewhere. Just where that could be is currently unknown, but with the right move, the midfielder could enjoy a successful end to his career.

Pre-season awaits first at Leeds, however, and a chance for Klich to secure a place in Marsch’s plans for the upcoming season.
