Marcelo Bielsa deserves credit as Mateusz Klich closes in on 50 Leeds appearances

Mateusz Klich moved to Leeds United back in 2017 and he enjoyed a rough first year where it seemed like he would have no long-term future at Elland Road.

The midfielder played just 10 times for the Whites under Thomas Christiansen, before being loaned for the second half of the season to FC Utrecht.

He returned to the Yorkshire club last summer ahead of a new campaign and his time in English football has been transformed by manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Klich owes his success at Leeds so far to Bielsa, who reintroduced him to the first team over the summer and he’s gone on to become a vital player this campaign.

 

The attacking midfielder has made 39 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring eight goals and supplying seven assists in return.

Klich is an ever-present in the team and he’s primed for potentially his 50th appearance for Leeds at the weekend in the home match against Millwall.

The Whites are firmly in the hunt for automatic promotion in the Championship this season and the goals he’s provided from midfield have been crucial.

He’s also a senior Poland international that has forced his way back into the fold following his impressive club form and is in great form right now.

Klich is one of several examples within the Leeds squad of players to excel under the Bielsa reign so far and he’s someone the team are going to need to help get over the line for promotion.
