Leeds Midfielder Matuesz Klich Tells His Own Fan To 'F** Off' After Being Told To Stop Giving The Ball Away

Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich responded to a fan who criticised his performance against Southampton by bluntly telling him to "f*** off" on social media.

The 31-year-old Poland international recorded a total playing time of 66 minutes in Saturday's Premier League clash at Elland Road before being replaced by Kalvin Phillips, who received a rapturous reception on his return from injury.

Klich, meanwhile, was criticised by some for his efforts in the game that eventually finished 1-1.

A glorious free-kick from Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse cancelled out Jack Harrison's first-half effort but clearly some Leeds supporters wanted a third consecutive win in their fight for Premier League safety.

One frustrated Twitter user wrote: "@Cl5hy. Stop giving the fckin ball away FFS and stupid free kicks around the box it's kids stuff FFS."

One user wrote: "Two ways to stop the criticism. Remove yourself from social media, or simply tell them to f*ck off. Mateusz Klich [clap emoji]."

Another commented: "Fair play to Leeds' Mateusz Klich. About time we saw players responding properly," while another said: "You can give away free kicks as much as you like next week. Watford have only scored one in six years."

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch was delighted with the return of Kalvin Phillips, who replaced Mateusz Klich with half an hour left at Elland Road.

“Yeah, I think he’s fantastic,” said Marsch of England international Phillips. “You can see his quality, you can see his poise, you can see the confidence he brings to the group.

"When I say we were pushing in the last 15-20 minutes, I think Kalvin was a really big part of that, came on the pitch and really just settled things down for us.”

Marsch added: “We keep trying to push him to play more intensively to get better at counter-pressing, to really win his duels and his aerial duels and the more that he can expand his presence on the pitch with and without the ball is just going to make us better and better.

"And his presence will be massive. So yeah, really excited. And so as everybody you can see, the quality provides the group.”
