Much was expected of Mateusz Klich when he joined Leeds United in the summer transfer window, but the 27-year-old midfielder has failed to make an impact at Elland Road so far this season.
As reported by The Yorkshire Post, Leeds had to pay FC Twente a transfer fee of £1.5 million in order to secure the services of Klich in the summer transfer window.
The Poland international midfielder joined the Whites with a strong reputation, but the 27-year-old is struggling to get into the team at the moment.
Klich has made only one start and just two substitute appearances in the Championship for Leeds so far this season.
On Thursday, Klich posted a cryptic message on social networking site Twitter (see below), suggesting that he has been left out of the Leeds squad for the Championship game against Barnsley away from home on Saturday afternoon.
Head coach Thomas Christiansen subsequently told The Yorkshire Evening Post that the Poland international has been left out of the squad.
Leeds fans have responded to Klich’s message on Twitter, with some backing him and others criticising him.
We need to start him— James (@FFSAlioski) November 24, 2017
If that's you not in the team and Okane instead then my head will explode, don't give up, this situation can't continue for much longer without change, you must be beyond frustrated.— Andy (@VacantFaith81) November 24, 2017
Keep training hard and he'll pick you, hopefully.— jamie croft (@CroftLeeds) November 24, 2017
People ripping him saying he cant be training hard enough etc. He cant be any worse than whats being put on the pitch atm! Surely worth giving him a game!— James Courtney (@jcourts1991) November 24, 2017
Sorry pal, you look really good, can’t see why we bought you if you’re not playing— Reggie (@Wray5150) November 24, 2017
Start him? He hasn't done enough to justify a start. The manager clearly isn't seeing enough behind the scenes, he was ok at Burnley but poor in the league and Ronny/Phillips have had good seasons...considering Vieira's suspended I'd bench him, only due to few other backups.— Gordon f****** Ramsey (@FootballPeters) November 24, 2017
Stop whining! Straighten up and train harder. Do that and your chance will come. Thomas picks the players whom he sees best.— Dan Finvold (@DatDan82) November 24, 2017
Couldn’t agree more if you were any good you’d be starting you’ve not impressed when you’ve come on so stop going to social media to moan @T9Christiansen have a word with your cry baby fringe players for fuck sake— Mr Glassalfempty (@DRobinson92) November 24, 2017
Dont like players doing this on social media tbh. I get that hes pissed off but looks unprofessional— Zach (@JanssonSZN) November 24, 2017
Stay off the Twitter with your Ryan Reynolds GIFs, get on the training ground, get there earlier, stay later, work harder than anyone else.— Brian Canavan (@BriBriCanavan) November 24, 2017
Unprofessional. Don’t air your dirty laundry in public. Get a grip.— Joe Eastell (@EastellJ) November 24, 2017
