He played a key role in Leeds’ promotion to the Premier League in 2020, a season that fans will never forget, as they had waited 16 years to return to the top flight.
Klich scored the first goal under manager Marcelo Bielsa, who is regarded as a legend amongst the Leeds faithful, and featured more times under the Argentinian than any of his teammates.
Mateusz Klich scored the first goal of the Marcelo Bielsa era for Leeds United in August 2018 and then went on to play 157 times under him, more than any other player has in Bielsa’s entire managerial career. One of the embodiments of that fantastic era. Legend. #lufc pic.twitter.com/cN1NXhFK1J
