Mateusz Klich unhappy with Jesse Marsch as Leeds United star heads for loan exit

Mateusz Klich is unhappy with Jesse Marsch’s decision to leave him out of his first-team plans at Leeds United this season, according to Polish journalist Łukasz Wiśniowski.

The Canal+ reporter has been quoted by Polish site Transfery saying that Klich, 32, could be loaned out by the Whites as a result of Marsch’s new pecking order.

It is understood that a return to the Netherlands could be on the cards for the former PEC Zwolle, FC Twente and FC Utrecht midfielder.

Wiśniowski said: “Marsch has clearly made it clear that Klich will not be in the first squad and will only supplement the team. 

“And he takes it personally. 

“There is an intense search for options. Probably loan, there is a lot of talk about the Dutch option – Eredivisie. 

“Klich is very aware of his position on the market.”

Unfair

If Klich is being frozen out by Marsch, then we’re not exactly happy with that.

Although the Poland international’s form dropped last year, he’s still one of the most experienced members of the squad and that could be invaluable.

Leeds’ midfield is looking very fresh with the arrivals of Marc Roca and Tyler Adams earlier this summer while Kalvin Phillips left to join Manchester City.

Adam Forshaw is injured – again – while Stuart Dallas is also out for the foreseeable future with a fractured femur.

Klich should be playing a role in this side – Leeds need him.

If Marsch plans to axe him from his first-team plans then it’s no surprise to see the former Twente midfielder looking for a move elsewhere.

If Klich does move on, we wish him all the best.

But Leeds should be wary of this. It could cause unrest among the squad as Klich is no doubt a popular character.

In other Leeds United news, another senior exit is on the cards with a loan-to-buy deal lined up for this Leeds ace.
