‘Not how I imagined it’: Leeds ace ‘disappointed’ with current situation
Matuesz Klich admits he is “disappointed” with his lack of game time for club and country as the midfielder battles for starts at both Leeds United and Poland, speaking to Sport PL.
As you may have noticed, the World Cup is only six weeks away.
And as things stand, you’d be long odds on Klich being included in the XI for Poland’s group stage opener against Mexico on November 22n.d. Leeds’ long-serving midfield general is yet to start a single league game in 2022/23; his seven substitute appearances averaging less than 20 minutes.
The cliché as such has fallen out of favor on an international level as well. Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz didn’t even give the former Utrecht playmaker a place on the bench in last month’s 1-0 Nations League win over Wales.
Is Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich ready for the World Cup?
“Of course I was disappointed,” admits the 32-year-old Klich. “Everyone who (is part of the Polish squad) wants to play as much as possible. This is not how I imagined it.
I can’t do anything but show in the league games that I deserve more.
Whether Klich gets the chance to do just that – to show Michniewicz what he’s missing at Leeds United – remains to be seen. Yes, he has appeared in each of Leeds’ seven Premier League games this term. But short appearances from the bench will not be enough for the player who harbors hopes of a starting place in Qatar.
Klich was reportedly considering leaving Elland Road in the summer to boost his first-team prospects ahead of the World Cup. The arrivals of Tyler Adams, Brenden Aaronson and Marc Roca knocked him down to Jesse Marsch.
The 41-time Polish international spoke openly about the fact that it could also come full circle; he ended his career where he began.
“Perhaps I will say goodbye to the ball in the colors of Cracovia, from which I set out into the world?” says Klich, who made his professional debut in the Ekstraklasa jersey in 2008. “I will return to this city (Krakow). I hope that when I come back (to Poland) there will be options.
