Jesse Marsch hinted that he could give Mateusz Bogusz the chance to resurrect his Leeds United career when the youngster returns from injury – during Thursday’s press conference, ahead of Saturday’s clash against Wolves.
Bogusz, 20, joined Leeds in January 2019 and initially impressed in the Under-23 side. In his 18 months in Yorkshire, he broke into the senior side on three occasions, his last appearance coming in September 2020 in the Carabao Cup.
Since then, he has been out on loan. A spell at Logrones during 2020-21 was poor, managing two goal involvements in 24 games. Last season, he went on loan to second-tier Spanish side Ibiza, and it was much more impressive.
Clocking up 22 appearances during the first half of the season, he scored four goals and laid on seven assists. But in January, he suffered a rupture of his anterior cruciate ligament. He is on his way back to full fitness this summer.
With a year left on his Leeds contract, there is supposedly interest in his services. But speaking on Thursday, Marsch hinted that there is a chance Bogusz could break his way back in – with Marsch open to taking a look at the Pole.
“Bogusz working hard and also been on the pitch. Hopeful he can be team training in a few weeks. Need to get to know him better, and take a look at him,” Marsch said, as quoted by Leeds Live in his latest press conference.

Has he got a chance? Well, Leeds have just signed Brenden Aaronson and there are a number of attacking midfielders that will be ahead of Bogusz in the pecking order. But what he does have in his favour, is his age.
When Bogusz was signed, there was enormous hype surrounding him. He proved that he is capable of huge potential with his form in La Liga 2 last season, but, it all depends how he returns from his injury. Marsch is ready to wait.
