Mateusz Klich joined a select number of Leeds United fans in Washington DC in a pub to watch his old side draw against Leicester City in the Premier League on Tuesday night – as the Whites failed to hold on to a narrow lead.
Klich, 32, left Leeds in January after five and a half years on the books. A modern icon of the club, he clocked up 195 games for the Whites. He has even hinted at returning to Elland Road to take that tally beyond the 200 mark.
Since, Klich has moved to the MLS and teamed up with Wayne Rooney at DC United. He has made a real impact in what has been an up-and-down start to the 2023 campaign – having a hand in four goals in his opening nine games.
Indeed, DC have 11 points from their opening nine games – winning their last two matches. On Tuesday night, or for DC, mid-afternoon, Klich watched his old Leeds teammates try to save themselves from the clutches of relegation.
The DC Leeds fan group posted a picture of Klich sat at the bar, staring intently at the overhead television screen alongside other punters in Leeds shirts. He will have been just as frustrated to watch Leeds fail to pick up a win.

A really disappointing result. One that Leeds should really have won. Indeed, the goal conceded should have been avoided – Liam Cooper should have fouled Kelechi Iheanacho, and Junior Firpo did not know where his man was.
Even after Vardy’s equaliser, Marc Roca should score a header and then Patrick Bamford’s miss – well the least said, the better. It is two points dropped, rather than a point gained. Five more games to go, but it looks ominous.
