Having endured a difficult 2017, Mateusz Klich has enjoyed a bright start to the season under new Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa. The 28-year-old has played all 6 Championship matches so far, scoring three goals while also providing an assist.
From being cast aside and loaned out to Dutch club FC Utrecht last season; to becoming a crucial part of the Bielsa juggernaut, Klich’s resurgence so far has been truly remarkable.
While the midfielder looks set to play a key role in Leeds’ bid for promotion this term, his impressive performances also earned him a recall to the national set-up after a gap of four years.
After marking his Poland return by starting in their UEFA Nations League opener against Italy on Friday, Klich came off the bench to score a brilliant equalizer in the 87th minute of his team’s 1-1 draw against Republic of Ireland last night.
The goal was clear evidence of the improved player Klich has become, as he showed sublime control while playing a one-two on the edge of the box before calmly slotting the ball past the keeper. Check out the goal:
