Leeds United round-up: Injury update, Klich on scoring form and Heckingbottom discusses Leeds switch

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Quartet returning

Leeds United are set to have injured quartet Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez, Gaetano Berardi and Conor Shaughnessy available after the international break.

The former pair have been, in particular, sorely missed, with Leeds lacking an end product in the final third.

Leeds face Hull City tomorrow night and then Brentford at the weekend. After that there is an international break and, according to the YEP, the four players should all be fit for the Blackburn Rovers clash on October 20th.

Patrick Bamford and Izzy Brown will remain on the sidelines for the time being.

Klich on fire

 

Mateusz Klich says he is in the form of his life after a brilliant start to the season at Elland Road. The Polish international has been in fine form under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa.

The midfielder, who was cast aside last season, has been brilliant since returning from a loan spell at FC Utrecht.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, he also said he believes Leeds will soon find their scoring boots again and start picking up the wins they need to stay in a promotion fight.

Heckingbottom on Barnsley ‘divorce’

Paul Heckingbottom has explained why he left Barnsley to become Leeds United manager earlier this year. The move came after Leeds had sacked Thomas Christiansen and Heckingbottom was charged with getting Leeds back into the play-off picture.

He failed to do so and was replaced by Marcelo Bielsa this summer.

Heckingbottom’s move to Leeds was a shock, after only recently signing a new deal a Oakwell. But he explained to the Coaches’ Voices that he felt like leaving Barnsley was a ‘divorce’ after losing ‘emotional attachment’ with the Tykes.
