Leeds United star Mateusz Klich offered a succinct - if rude - response to a fan criticising him for his play in the Whites' Premier League draw with Southampton, telling the supporter in question to "f*ck off".

Jesse Marsch's side were held to a draw against the Saints on Saturday, with another wonderful free-kick from James Ward-Prowse doing the damage.

It left Leeds shy of winning three on the bounce under the American and prompted some angry responses on social media - and Klich certainly rose to his own defence in particularly blunt terms.
