Leeds United midfield Mateusz Klich has revealed that the runs he makes beyond defenders in the final third of the pitch is not something which has been coached and instead comes naturally to him.

Klich has started every game for Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far this season and has been directly involved in 10 goals so far for the Whites.

The Poland international was out of favour at Leeds in the 2017/18 season and spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Utrecht, but has been viewed by many as an integral part of the set-up this season.

“I think it’ comes naturally”, Klich told LUTV when he was asked about his late runs into the attacking third, something that has become a regular feature of his game.

“I see the spaces and I just run for it because obviously when we play against teams, they are very close and very compact, then there is no space in here [midfield], so I just run behind the defensive line of opponents.

“I just do it naturally. I don’t think about it. I just see the space and run."

Leeds are at the top of the Championship table and have a one-point lead over closest challengers Norwich City.

The Whites face Aston Villa in what will be the final game of the first half of the season, and will hope to keep their place at the top of the table.
