Leeds United midfielder, Mateusz Klich, is a go-to player for Marcelo Bielsa having never missed a game under the Argentinian. He’s also a player that very nearly didn’t make it at Elland Road after his initial transfer from Holland to be a part of Thomas Christiansen’s Whites set-up.
The initial move from Holland, with Leeds paying Twente FC around £1.5million, looked to be heading for failure. He didn’t fit under Christiansen and was bombed straight back to Holland and a loan with FC Utrecht. His half-season there didn’t pull up many trees but he arrived back in England and worked his socks off in that first pre-season under Marcelo Bielsa.
All of that is behind the hardworking Polish international who Bielsa says runs further when angered. Now he is an integral part of the team and that is in all respects. The fans also love him and not only for his tremendous work ethic. He is also a great practitioner of an art that has come to be known as ‘shithousery’ – the intentional winding up of people for the benefit of oneself.
In a video published on his Instagram story, Klich winds up fellow White star Helder Costa whose Porsche suffered a flat tyre at training yesterday (the picture below is a still from it):
The song that is playing over the sheepish grin of Helder Costa is Danzel’s ‘Pump it Up’. It is a tune that Leeds United fans seized on and altered for the terraces so it rang out ‘Don’t you know pump it up; the Whites are going up’.
Not only is an apt set of lyrics but it applies perfectly to the rear tyre on Costa’s Porsche.
