Mateusz Klich is done at Leeds United after snub v Fulham, time to pack bags

Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich will be scratching his head watching the club crumbles to its knees in the Premier League, as he struggles to get on the pitch.

Tyler Adams was nowhere to be seen on Sunday as he missed out on the matchday squad against Fulham, handing the Polish international the perfect chance to start again.

Instead, Jesse Marsch decided to hand Sam Greenwood another start at the base of midfield, leaving Klich on the bench as he watched from the sidelines yet again.

There were questions surrounding the future of Klich throughout the summer.

With the World Cup quickly approaching for Poland, there were links with a loan or permanent exit from Elland Road, but the midfielder saw common ground with Marsch.

Those opportunities have not come and seeing a young talent start ahead of him when he actually first arrived at the club as a striker, will only have left him infuriated.

Klich has made 191 appearances for the Whites over the years, but it is hard to see him getting another start before he leaves Elland Road, which could come quickly.

Pack his bags.

Leeds are slowly showing one of their longest servants the exit door.

Marsch is under severe pressure and in those moments you usually turn to your experienced heads, but the midfielder is being hung out to dry with the odd appearance off the bench.

Playing just over 15 minutes each week is not good enough, and Leeds will only have themselves to blame if they lose one of their biggest influences in January.

Knowing Victor Orta and the Leeds board as well, they wouldn’t replace him, leaving the club in a complete rot and reliant on the injured Adam Forshaw and Greenwood, who cannot do it against the very best in midfield.

It looks as though Klich is officially done at Leeds, and it will be a big shame to see him moving on when he does, although the writing has been on the wall for months now.
