Mateusz Bogusz suggests he wants Leeds United exit to stay in Spanish football

Mateusz Bogusz wants to quit Leeds United and “stay in Spain” amid an impressive start to life on loan at UD Ibiza.

Bogusz, 20, joined the Segunda Division club on a season-long loan from the Whites in the summer and has since scored three goals in 10 league appearances.

Bogusz is in his second loan spell away from Elland Road and The Athletic journalist Phil Hay has suggested that the Poland Under-21 international may be “at the end of the line under” Marcelo Bielsa.

And based on a recent interview, Bogusz is open to quitting Elland Road.

“Honestly, I didn’t like it at Logrones (the club he played for on loan in 2020/21). We mainly defended on the pitch,” Bogusz told Super Express, as translated by HITC.  

“Ibiza is completely different. We play a lot here and want to keep the ball. It suits me. It suits my style. If I could, I would like to stay in Spain.” 

Good luck, Mateusz

It is a shame that Bogusz has not really broken into the Leeds first-team on a regular basis because there was a lot of praise for the youngster prior to his move to England and also while he played for our Under-23s.

Bogusz has played three times in all competitions for the Leeds senior side, with two of those outings coming in the Carabao Cup and the other being in the Championship in a win over Charlton.

Since winning promotion, Bogusz has been on loan at Logrones, where he played 23 times in the league last season and started just nine times.

It’s fair to say that was a poor loan spell for the Polish youngster and that may have made Bielsa’s mind up about him.

However, since joining Ibiza, Bogusz is doing well, playing as a versatile attack on both wings or in a central role behind the striker.

We wish Bogusz all the luck in the future.

It’s fairly clear he’s not going to be seen in a Leeds shirt again based on Hay’s update on Bielsa’s stance and also the player’s interview.

But he’s a decent young midfielder who could go on to have a solid career in European football.
