Polish international Jacek Krzynowek has completed a move to Bundesliga side, Hannover 96.
According to various German news media outlets, Krzynowek has moved to Hannover for a reported 400 thousand euro price tag. Coach Dieter Hecking moved quickly to land the 32-year-old from Wolfsburg following the departure of fellow midfielder Szabolcs Huszti to Zenit St Petersburg. “Jacek knows the Bundesliga well, he is experienced and has often caused problems with goals,” said Hecking. “He fits well in our team.” The Polish winger has agreed to a 18-month contract with Hannover, and is hoping for regular play.
‘Why? For the money’
Unfortunate news for Ekstraklasa side, Legia Warsaw who had not too long ago sent an official offer for Krzynowek. “He was to be the most paid player in the Polish Ekstraklasa, but instead chose Hannover over us.” said Miroslaw Trzeciak of Legia. In Krzynowek’s response on why he chose the German club over the Polish one, he replied, “To be honest, it was more of Felix Magath’s decision. I only found out about the transfer in the morning. The transfer was all about money, that’s business, but I’m happy that I will have a chance to play again.” said the Pole. Krynowek has so far played 153 matches and scored a total of 22 goals in the German Bundesliga.
