Will Mateusz Klich make a return to Leeds United next season?
11 - Mateusz Klich (@Cli5hy) created 11 chances in Heracles Almelo v @fcutrecht, the highest total in an Eredivisie game since Christian Eriksen in November 2012 (14 v Roda JC). Generous.— OptaJohan (@OptaJohan) April 30, 2018
Mateusz Klich has returned to the Eredivisie and has again lit up the division. This past weekend, he had the best match of ANY Leeds midfielder, as the Norwich City match left much to be desired from a Leeds point of view.
It’s been rumoured that Klich and Thomas Christiansen just never got along, but with TC gone, could Klich make a triumphant return to Leeds? Anything is possible, and depending on what formation Leeds will use next year, a player like Klich, who is more of a playmaker from the midfield, instead of a traditional “number 10” role that is used in the 4-2-3-1, he could play an important part in the squad going forward.
At least one Leeds player had a good weekend, even if it wasn’t for Leeds.
