Lots of Leeds United fans have been lauding Mateusz Klich on social media for his second-half display in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Reading.
Supporters have been lavishing the Poland international for his efforts at home to the Royals after LUFC Data assessed his performance following the break, having seemingly taken his game to a higher level than any other player.
Bielsa has never named a starting line-up in the Championship without Klich in the eleven.
Could Bielsa's system work without Klich?
The Argentine’s never-ending trust in Klich would return the highest number of completed passes (42/47) in the second half on Saturday, as well as the most passes completed in the final third (26/31) and successful take-ons (2/2) of any player.
Klich also made 70% of his total match actions in the second half (80/114), while 77% of his actions came in the Royal’s side of the field. Forty of his 80 second half actions even came after the 75th-minute, which was 13 more than any other player during that period.
Tarnow-born Klich made the most ball recoveries (six) after the break, too.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to Klich’s production in the second half of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Reading…

And all I thought he did was just “runaround” and wasn’t as skilful as a certain Reading player?
Just goes to show how underrated he is by everyone outside Elland Road

He’s a machine

He’s absolutely quality just never stops

He’s been quality all season, and large parts of last season too, but these last 4/5 games, he has been absolutely outstanding.

Do you have any hard data on whether he is a human being because I have some lingering doubts. #lufc

….and we sent him out on loan not that long ago with seemingly no way back. MB saw the potential…the rest is history, as they say!

In other Leeds United news, an Elland Road exodus is expected if Bielsa walks out on the club this summer.
