Leeds fans react as Bielsa praises Matuesz Klich after revealing he nearly left

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa praised midfielder Mateusz Klich during his pre-match Millwall press conference and also revealed that he came close to leaving the club last summer, and Whites fans have been quick to react on Twitter.

The Poland international is set to make his 50th appearance for the Yorkshire outfit when the Lions come to town on Saturday, and the Argentine manager was happy to wax lyrical about the 28-year-old who is tasked with something of a box-to-box role at Elland Road.

Plenty of United supporters reacted to their boss’ fascinating and insightful comments with one saying “just when you think you can’t love Bielsa more”.

That wasn’t the only thing to come from the discussion about Klich though, as the experienced coach revealed the player was keen to go last summer having found himself as the fourth-choice option in his position, all before Ronaldo Vieira departed for Sampdoria and loanee Lewis Baker struggled to make an impact.

Plenty of fans are clearly glad that didn’t turn out to be the case, which is no surprise considering how good he has been in the No.8 role for the automatic promotion hopefuls this term.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
