Leeds United have hinted that there will be a farewell at Elland Road on Wednesday night for Mateusz Klich in what is the club’s first home game since Klich departed for DC United – and he has joked we are signing Robert Lewandowski.
Klich, 32, was confirmed as leaving Leeds United after the Whites drew 2-2. But he was given a hastily arranged send off, with players and Jesse Marsch wearing Klich t-shirts. A last-minute guard of honour was formed at Elland Road.
It came before confirmation that Klich had actually departed. Shortly after that evening, Leeds confirmed he had left the club – with an offer from an MLS club on the table. Since then, Klich has been confirmed as a new DC United player.
Now, Leeds have hinted that they will be giving Klich a proper farewell on Wednesday night before our third-round FA Cup replay against Cardiff City. Leeds told supporters to be in their seats early, accompanied by a Poland flag.
Leeds hint at Klich farewell: Klich jokes we are signing Lewandowski
Clearly, Klich will be at Elland Road on Wednesday night. The MLS season does not begin until the end of February and Wayne Rooney’s side have friendlies scheduled beginning on February 1. So, Klich is yet to return to action with DC.
He will be linking up with Ravel Morrison and Christian Benteke at the MLS club. It is believed a move to DC will not affect Klich’s chances of Poland duty. Karol Swiderski, who plays for MLS side Charlotte, was in Qatar with Poland.
Responding on Twitter to the hint from Leeds that Klich could be given a farewell at Elland Road, the Whites icon joked that Leeds are actually signing Barcelona striker Lewandowski. Even, tagging him in the Tweet. Of course, not a reality.
