With both Polish and Italian roots, Robert Acquafresca has still yet to make his debut on the senior national team of the World Cup champions. Now Stefan Majewski has taken it upon himself to start fighting for the striker’s services, so that he may still represent the Bialo-czerwoni.
Luckily there has been a breakthrough for the Atalanta BC target man, where he is now considering Poland – reports tabloid Super Express.
What made Acquafresca change his mind, who had more than once declared that he wants to play for the national team of Italy? It appears to be rather simple, Robert’s current season is not something he is happy about.
Acquafresca has yet to score a goal in the Serie A under the colors of Atalanta where he is currently on loan, thus receiving a call-up to the Azzurri becomes an unrealistic prospect.
On the other hand, Acquafresca could easily take Majewski’s offer and already gain a spot on the Polish starting line-up, even if he is having a poor season in Italy. However, the Polish-Italian must first prove his Polish citizenship and obtain a passport, which should not be a big problem.
The key in this case may be the aid of Zbigniew Boniek, which is a big fan of Acquafresca’s talent. He had once before tried to mediate on his behalf and said that if it depended on him, then Acquafresca would have already been playing for Poland by now.
Boniek seen that once Leo Beenhakker did not intend to fight for the Atalanta player, who played for Cagliari Calcio at that time, he gave up. But now he may again be involved. In this way, he would help his good friend, Stefan Majewski.
Majewski, in turn, announced that he would do everything in his power to convince Acquafresca to play in white and red colors.
“I will not pass on any player that could potentially help the Polish national team. I will fight for Robert.” says Majewski.
Super Express believes that Acquafresca could chose to play for Poland over Italy because of his mother, Ewa Murkowska, as he wants to give something back to her.
