'My frustration...' - Jermaine Beckford picks apart out-of-position Leeds player
Jermaine Beckford was left frustrated by Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich in the 4-1 defeat against Leicester City on Monday.
The Polish international was forced to play the role left by the injured Kalvin Phillips, which allowed Jamie Shackleton to slot in ahead of him.
Both Klich and Shackleton were overwhelmed immediately, which saw the Foxes take advantage repeatedly at Elland Road.
Speaking on the ‘Doing a Leeds’ podcast‘, Beckford believes that Pascal Struijk should have started the game instead.
“My frustration – and don’t get me wrong for a second, I’m not a manager, I’m not a coach or anything – but watching the match, just watching the position of Klich in the centre of midfield, the holding centre mid, he wasn’t comfortable there,” he said.
