We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Mateusz Klich’s future is likely to be left down to him in January, according to Paul Robinson, amid rumblings that the midfielder is unhappy at Leeds United.
Ex-Eurosport journalist Dean Jones told GiveMeSport on 19 November that Klich, 32, could be “annoyed” by his lack of game time at Elland Road this season, which led to him missing out on the Poland squad for the World Cup in Qatar.
TeamTalk added on 22 November that it’ll be difficult for Leeds to convince the Polish midfielder to stay past January with clubs from France, Italy and Germany touching base with his agent.
Klich is one of the longest-serving players at Leeds having joined from FC Twente in 2017 as one of Victor Orta’s first signings as the club’s director of football.
He’s since played 192 times in all competitions for the Whites and Robinson believes that if he wants to leave in January, the Yorkshire outfit shouldn’t stand in his way.
Speaking to MOT Leeds News, the former Leeds goalkeeper said: “Klich is entitled to be the master of his own destiny.
“I think he’s been a fantastic player for Leeds but he hasn’t had a look this year with the manager.
“He wouldn’t have started as many games as he would want to start.
“He’s obviously very disappointed to miss out on the Poland squad for the World Cup.
“And with his commitment and effort for Leeds, he’s earned the right to be the master of his own destiny.
“He’s clearly not that high in Jesse Marsch’s plans so you’d like to think that somebody of his ilk, who’s served the club so well, they’d allow him to do whatever he wanted to do.
“He could probably stay if he wanted to but that role probably doesn’t suit him where he’s at in his career now.”
