Leeds first-team star sends message to fans after worrying manager comments
Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has seemingly committed his future to the Championship club on social media.
The 27-year-old is currently out of favour at Elland Road and fans had been wondering whether he wanted to leave the club, after his recent social media activity and reports linking him with a move away in January.
However, this latest interaction with a Leeds supporter on Twitter suggests that the midfielder is happy and wants to remain at the club.
No worries, I’m Leeds player I want us to win games. ????

Last Friday after a morning training session Klich tweeted the Ryan Reynolds facepalm GIF, suggesting that he was unhappy with being left out of the 18-man squad for the Championship trip to Barnsley on Saturday.

The midfielder’s other bizarre activity on social media included liking tweets from fans suggesting he deserved to be in the starting line-up.
Klich became Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen’s first signing for the club when he joined from Dutch side FC Twente on a three-year deal in the summer, but failed to make an impression.

However, it looks like he’s set for an extended spell on the sidelines after manager Christiansen said that he isn’t “my first choice at the moment” in his most recent press conference.

The player had been linked with a return to Holland in January after only making seven appearances for the Whites in all competitions this season.
TC on Klich: said thoughts about his future are for another day (was linked with a January return to Holland earlier this week). Says he wants to keep his players focused with so many games to come. #lufc

Meanwhile, Leeds return to Championship action tonight against fourth-placed Aston Villa at Elland Road.
