Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich impressed and got on the score-sheet in his side’s 4-3 pre-season friendly win against Guiseley on Thursday night, and Whites fans were quick to have their say on his display.
The Poland international only joined the Yorkshire outfit from FC Twente last summer, but he struggled to make the grade under former boss Thomas Christiansen, and he was loaned back to the Eredivisie with Utrecht during the January transfer window, where he impressed.
The 28-year-old has since returned to Elland Road and has been trying to impress new manager Marcelo Bielsa during pre-season, and he certainly would have done that with his latest showing – scoring once and providing a nice ball for the fourth goal.
Leeds supporters, some of whom have delivered their verdict on a potential move for a £100,000-a-week Premier League striker, took to social media to give their thoughts on Klich’s performance, and while one simply labelled him as “class”, another said he “could be a big player for us”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Glad Klich is getting another crack at the whip too. Mightn't work out but he was unfairly treated last year. #LUFC

#lufc when you got the likes of Edmundson, Shackleton and Pearce then you have a future. But tonight yet again Klich, ably supported by Baker, was to us stand out. Hungry, quick and tons of long and short balls, nifty one 2's and right in it. Klich is class.

Guiseley 3v4 Leeds United. Mateusz Klich one of the big plusses from pre-season games for me. It’s like signing a new player. Must be close to securing a place in our opening fixture. #lufc pic.twitter.com/ovSBY8So3w

Klich is like a new signing. Only preseason but hearing good reports, he’s obviously got talent. Hope he smashes it if given the chance #lufc

Have to give Klich a proper chance in first team #lufc

Klich man of match for me also. Think he’s the man of pre season and deserves to break back into 1st team football at Leeds.

For me, Klich has to be given a chance this year! #lufc
