Leeds United: Fans slam Mateusz Klich following defeat to Swansea City

Leeds United were beaten for the first time this season on Saturday when Swansea City grabbed a last-minute winner.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side completely dominated the tie from start to finish with 61.9% possession (as they have done in so many of their previous Championship outings this season), however their inability to finish their chances proved to be as costly as it was in the previous campaign (as noted by a match report by Sky Sports).

Indeed, the likes of Patrick Bamford and Ezgjan Alioski had chances to give the hosts all three points throughout the game, but were subsequently on the wrong end of a 1-0 result when Wayne Routledge gave the Swans the victory and pulled away from Leeds at the top of the division.

As has become the norm in the modern era, a number of fans took to social media to vent their frustrations following the game and a fair number of supporters appeared to take aim at Mateusz Klich.

The Poland international did not have the best of afternoon’s and was taken off the field of play in the second half as he failed to have a real impact in the game.

Fan site Through It All echoed the idea that he did not make much of a contribution on the pitch, as they gave him a playing rating of 5.5/10, stating: “Fairly quiet day on the pitch and it wasn’t a shock when he was substituted. Didn’t do a great deal wrong but he had no real impact today. Looked frustrated with his performance as much as Leeds failure to score.”

The Yorkshire Evening Post gave him a six as they wrote: “Linked up well in the first half but faded in the second. Wasn’t happy to be substituted, presumably unhappy with his own showing.”

Fans on Twitter, however did not appear to be as unforgiven with their opinions on Klich’s display though, with many of them sharing negative opinions of his performance.

Here are just some of their views…
