Leeds United’s Mateusz Klich has explained that he’s got an individual target to try better his goal return from last season.
The central midfielder managed 10 goals in all competitions last season for the Whites, as well as chipping in with nine assists too.
He’s continued to be an ever-present in Marcelo Bielsa’s XI this campaign by starting every league fixture and is the engine room in the centre of the park.
The Poland international only has five goals in all competitions so far this season and goals from all over the park is an area that Leeds can definitely improve.
Klich has one goal and three assists in the last four games to enjoying a small burst of form going forward and he will continue to make tireless runs.
The 29-year-old plays a box-to-box role that sees him cover every blade of grass and his importance as a player can’t be stressed enough, but he should be looking to be more composed in front of goal
“I would love to reach the same amount of goals as last season, but it’s going to be hard. I’m missing some goals, but last couple of games was good,” Klich told LUTV.
Leeds fans will hope Klich hast just the 10 games remaining this season to add to his goal tally, as anymore is likely to mean a spot in the dreaded play-offs.
Bielsa watched his team put four past Hull City at the weekend and that’s the kind of display they are capable of, but the three consecutive 1-0 wins prior to that result are just as importance.
Klich is unlikely to match his goal output from last season, but he’s definitely back in form over the last few weeks and that’s massive for the team.
With Patrick Bamford not acting as a goal machine at striker, it’s up to the likes of Klich, Pablo Hernandez, Helder Costa and Jack Harrison to weigh in.
