Mateusz Klich is the man to take over penalty duties for Leeds United

The Polish international has a good record from the penalty spot.

Leeds United will be competing in the play-offs as they hunt for Premier League football. That means they may find themselves in a penalty shoot-out. At the moment, nobody would be betting on Leeds in such a scenario.

The Whites have missed their last three penalty attempts. Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford, and Kemar Roofe have all missed from 12 yards.

So if Leeds need a different penalty taker, should it be Mateusz Klich?

A lot of Leeds fans remember Klich slotting home a comfortable penalty against Burnley in the Carabao Cup back in September 2017.


The Pole does indeed have a good penalty record. He was the number one taker for FC Twente back in 2016-17. He took six and scored six for the Dutch side. In fact, he has missed just once from the spot, whilst playing for PEC Zwolle back in 2013.

Considering his composed and relaxed style, Klich has the attributes to be a penalty taker for Leeds. Capable of placing the ball or hammering it home he clearly doesn’t mind stepping up either, based on his history.

Leeds should hand the Pole penalty duties if they earn another spot-kick this month.
