Leeds United’s Mateusz Klich squirts water down opponent’s back during melee

Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich squirted water down the back of Bolton Wanderers midfielder Joe Williams during the whites’ 2-1 win on Saturday.

A Patrick Bamford penalty and a second-half goal from Ezgjan Alioski cancelled out Mark Beevers’ close range effort to put Leeds level on 64 points with second placed Sheffield United.

Alioski was at the centre of proceedings at Elland Road on Saturday and was smashed off the ball by Josh Magennis which sparked a pitchside melee involving players and staff.

During the fracas, Klich came up behind Williams and squirted water down his neck, which immediately set the Liverpudlian towards his way.

Leeds have a game to spare and trail league leaders Norwich City by just two points at the top of the Championship and manager Marcelo Bielsa believes his side are maturing as the season progresses.

“It’s a game very similar to other games we have played so far. We had chances to score and we didn’t score goals and we suffered on set pieces,” said Bielsa.

“This was the axis of the game. It was a team who fought a lot.

“We had many chances to score and missed some goals and dangerous actions by the opponent were on set pieces.

“These things have happened many times before in this Championship.

“There’s a difference on the matter of how we played the last minutes of the game, compared to the Swansea game where we won by one goal. We showed more maturity.”
