Lots of Leeds United fans have been reacting on Twitter after Poland midfielder Mateusz Klich responded to one supporter’s post on the coronavirus outbreak.
Whites fan Andy McVeigh – well known locally as the ‘Burley Banksy’ for his work around Elland Road depicting scenes, kits, quotes and players from the club’s illustrious history – had shared that the postponement of all professional football in England would offer Klich a rare chance to have a rest.
Klich has been one of the more-favoured first-team players at the club since Marcelo Bielsa took up his position in the dugout, with the 29-year-old yet to miss a starting Championship line-up under the Argentine for a run of 85 games (including the Play-Offs).
Is anyone more important to Bielsa than Klich?
But the 23-cap ace is not planning on treating the next few weeks as time off, despite our meetings with Cardiff City, Fulham and Luton Town each been pushed back after the FA announced that all games will be put on hold until, at least, April 3.
Klich responded to McVeigh’s post noting simply “rest is overrated” and drew in vast responses from the Elland Road faithful.
Rest is overrated 😜

Ha ha. We’ve got time to do that street art now, Mateusz. Want to come and paint that shirt picture on a street box?

Covid-19 stands no chance of catching Klichy, nobody can get near him with the constant running 😅.*
