Jakub Błaszczykowski To Join Boyhood Club Wisla Krakow Without A Wage
Jakub Błaszczykowski is the definition of loyalty. The former Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg winger is on the verge of joining Wisla Krakow, a team who are on the verge of bankruptcy.
That money will reportedly pay for outstanding wages. How incredible of a gesture is that? Take a bow, Kuba.
BIG NEWS from this morning: @jarokrolewski the passionate IT entrepreneur, KUBA BŁASZCZYKOWSKI and a third yet publicly unnamed person will contribute 1.3mln PLN (300K€) of their OWN money, so that the outstanding players' wages can be paid. This is a lifeline for Wisla. Respect- WISŁA News :flag_gb::flag_pl: (@WCracowNews) January 12, 2019
Respect to Jakub Blaszczykowski, who has not only agreed to play for free, but has also loaned Wisla Krakow 1.33 million zloty to help with their financial situation. Even his former club, Borussia Dortmund has taken notice of this. #EK https://t.co/MPdYEVm49a- Pat Novak (@PatricNova) January 12, 2019
Dortmund tweeted the above earlier to pay their respect to Błaszczykowski, who spent nine years with the Bundesliga outfit, making over 200 appearances in total.
'Kuba' is the most capped player for Poland, making 104 appearances in total for his national side, but this recent gesture is by far his biggest achievement on a personal level.
He is currently training with the club, whom he spent three years with during his time as a youth prospect. Respect.
Wisla Krakow returned back to training camp today, with Jakub Blaszczykowski taking part as the highlight story of the day.- Pat Novak (@PatricNova) January 10, 2019
For now, he's only practicing with Wisla as a guest player. No contract has been signed as Wisla's future is still up in the air. #EK https://t.co/U5ZplCH7Cr
At the start of the month, former club Wolfsburg announced that they mutually agreed to terminate the player's contract with immediate effect.
They later confirmed that the Poland international is presently in his homeland ahead of a potential transfer.
Take a bow, Kuba.
