Matuesz Klich says Poland teammate would be 'useful' at Leeds
Matuesz Klich has joked in a video posted on LUTV that Bayern Munich goal machine Robert Lewandowski would be “useful” at Leeds United, as Klich picked his Poland teammate as the best player he has faced – albeit in training.
Klich joined captain Liam Cooper and on-fire Ben White in a Q&A session last week, before videos of the meet and greet were published on LUTV’s website. The trio gave insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Leeds.
Since Klich joined Leeds from FC Twente for £1.5million (YEP) in the summer of 2017, Klich has overcome a difficult start at Elland Road to become a crucial member of Marcelo Bielsa’s side. His form has seen him earn 12 Poland caps since joining.
Klich plays alongside arguably the best centre-forward in world football in the form of Lewandowski for Poland. Asked who is the best player he has faced, Klich responded: “Lewandowski probably. He’s okay. He would be useful here.”
With 110 caps already to his name, Lewandowski is one of the most in-form players in European football this season as he continues to rack up an enormous total of goals for Bayern – scoring 214 goals in 260 games, as well as creating 47 strikes.
Leeds, meanwhile, boast Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah up front. Bamford is first choice but has only netted five times in 16 Championship appearances – perhaps why Klich joked that Leeds could do with superstar Lewandowski.
