The more I think about this stat, the more impressive it becomes.

Especially when you consider the ‘Bielsa burnout’ effect that can happen on some players, for him to be able to get through all of that is quite a remarkable achievement.

Mateusz Klich is a player that can occasionally go under the radar somewhat. He doesn’t get the praise that someone like Ben White does for his work at the back, nor does he come under the intense levels of scrutiny that Patrick Bamford does for his ability in front of goal, he just carries on with his work.

And it’s those abilities to just get about his work that has played a huge part in him starting, not just playing in, 77 consecutive league and playoff games under Marcelo Bielsa, the only Leeds player to do so in the time span according to @LUFCData on Twitter. Needless to say, there were a number of Leeds fans who were as impressed with that statistic as I was, who flocked to social media to pass on their praise of the 29-year-old Pole.

Is Klich in contention to be our player of the year?

Yes

Yes

No

No

I wonder how long he’ll be able to keep this run going. More importantly, now that people have mentioned it, hopefully that won’t jinx it.
