Leeds United ace Mateusz Klich walks off pitch with Poland teammates v Albania
Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich produced a moment of magic as he set up Karol Świderski’s goal for Poland against Albania on Tuesday night.
However, Klich’s wonderful assist was marred by ugly scenes that followed, with projectiles seemingly thrown at Poland players by Albanian supporters behind the goal.
As a result, the Poland players left the pitch but Klich’s cross for Świderski was still widely hailed by those who watched on.
Canal+ journalist Tomasz Cwiakala said: “At such moments as this cross, the words of Marcelo Bielsa that Klich has the potential to play everywhere are remembered.”
There’s not much that Klich cannot do on a football pitch.
While he’s had his critics at Elland Road, the Poland international is still someone who’s capable of scoring, creating and defending in matches without really breaking a sweat.
The former FC Twente midfielder looked as though he was going to be a Victor Orta flop in his first season at Elland Road but the work Bielsa has done with him has been phenomenal.
It’s just a shame that the central midfielder’s sublime assist led to ugly scenes among the Albania fans as they launched projectiles at the Poland players as they celebrated.
It seems that a lot of games are suffering from crowd trouble with the England and Hungary game no different at Wembley.
Is this a result of people being shut out of football for so long? Is this what happens when we’re locked inside with nothing else to do other than wait to be able to go back to matches?
Or is this just what we come to expect from certain groups of supporters?
