Jakub Błaszczykowski Captains Boyhood Club Wisla Krakow After 12 Years Away

Jakub Błaszczykowski Captains Boyhood Club Wisla Krakow After 12 Years Away

Jakub Błaszczykowski swapped packed crowds in the Bundesliga for a home pitch that looks more like something me or you would play on in Sunday League, such is his loyalty to Wisla Krakow.

The former Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg winger has returned to boyhood club, where he won the Polish Ekstraklasa before he moved to the German top tier and experienced a meteoric rise to the top level of European football.

And on Wednesday, 12 years on from his last appearance in a Wisla shirt, Błaszczykowski made his big return - captaining the side in a friendly against Garbarnia Kraków at the club's training base.

The two-time Bundesliga winner was playing his first game since November and so naturally he was eased into action, turning out for the first 45 minutes before being taken off at half-time by manager Maciej Stolarczyk.

Błaszczykowski is the most capped player for Poland, making 104 appearances in total for his national side, while he has also won the Polish Footballer of the Year award on two occasions.
