Leeds United fans were left lauding Mateusz Klich after a statistic emerged showing how important the Poland international has been this season.
According to LUFCDATA, the 29-year-old has played the most final-third passes of any player in the Championship this campaign (565). He has also featured in 81 consecutive regular season and playoff games under the management of Marcelo Bielsa.
One fan called him ‘totally underrated’.

His consistent performances under the Argentine is a huge turnaround from the summer of 2018, where the central midfielder was set to depart Elland Road and head to the United States of America (via SportoweFakty). However, he has turned around his career with the Yorkshire outfit and is now part of the team aiming for promotion to the Premier League. Fans were left lavishing the midfielder with praise after the stat about his passing emerged as they took to Twitter to react.
Let’s take a look at some of the reactions:
And people still don’t see what Klich does for the team, he’s the engine in this team he never stops, & when Phillips is in the team you see the best from Klich seeing those runs from midfield into the box. An absolute immense players

I’ll happily block anyone who doesn’t rate him. Because I don’t value their opinion if they can’t see his talent
