MOT View: Leeds star can leave worst memory in past with blinder v Cardiff

Leeds United will not have fond memories of their last outing against Cardiff City this season.

As well as that, there won’t be many fans or players wanting to remember the last trip to the Welsh capital in September 2017, a game that finished 3-1.

That season had started well under Thomas Christiansen and the Whites were top of the table before this game started to unravel everything negative at Elland Road.

Take Mateusz Klich for example, after that game it looked like he would never wear the white shirt again in his career.

The Polish international made a very rare start but was dragged off by Christiansen after his mistake led to the Bluebirds finding the back of the net.

Klich was deemed surplus to requirements at Elland Road after that game and was immediately loaned out to Dutch side FC Utrecht.

Marcelo Bielsa arriving in West Yorkshire transformed Klich’s career, and he has recently broken Gordon Strachan’s record for the most consecutive league starts at the Whites.

The 29-year-old has been superb in the past couple of years and has established himself as an integral part of Leeds’ push for promotion to the Premier League.

Klich has stepped up in the absence of Kalvin Phillips more often this season and is key in each third of the pitch. The midfielder completes 1.8 shots on goal as well as 1.9 key passes in each game according to WhoScored.

On top of that, he also completes a couple of tackles – only Phillips and Stuart Dallas average more in the Championship.

Klich can banish one of his worst memories in a Leeds shirt on Sunday, all he has to do is guide his side to yet another three points against Cardiff.
