Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has admitted that his heading is not the best part of his game and he prefers to stay on the edge of the box as a result.

Klich has played in all of Leeds’ 22 games in the Championship so far this season, and has scored five goals in the process.

The 28-year old has averaged 1.6 shots per game so far this season and has been a key cog in Marcelo Bielsa’s dynamic midfield set-up, becoming known for his long range efforts.

Klich has revealed that he does not look to get on the end of crosses because his heading is not the strongest and he prefers waiting for the cut-backs at the edge of the box to test the ‘keeper with his shots.

“I prefer to stay on the edge of the box and wait for the cut-backs [from the wingers] because obviously my heading is not the best”, Klich told LUTV.

“I don’t really go into the box.

“I’m there [near the box] quite often, but I prefer to stay on the edge of the box, get the ball and place it into the net."

Klich has helped Leeds climb to the top of the Championship table with his consistent performances in midfield and even earned a Poland cap after an absence of four years on the international scene earlier this season.
