Leeds United fans were lauding Mateusz Klich after Marcelo Bielsa talked about the Poland international in his press conference ahead of the clash with Middlesbrough.
Ahead of the game against Jonathan Woodgate’s side, the Argentine claimed that the central midfielder runs around 12km every fixture with 1km being high intensity (via Leeds Live). Klich has been one of the standout players for the Whites over the course of the Bielsa’s reign at Elland Road. He has started in every single regular season and playoff match under the former Marseille coach in the Championship (via Transfermarkt).
One fan called the player a ‘machine’.

Bielsa’s comments about the 29-year-old saw him earn a lot of praise from fans, who took to Twitter to react. Here are some of the replies:
