FLORIANOPOLIS, Brazil — Former Polish international player of Brazilian descent, Roger Guerreiro, recently spoke with onet.pl.
He stated that he would be happy to return to Poland to play football.
‘I was recently at Figueirense, but had a lot of problems with a knee injury. I have fully recovered from it now, but am searching for a new club. If there was an offer from one of the Polish clubs I would happily return to Poland to play for them.’
Roger mentioned his fondness for Poland, saying that his time there was the best point of his career.
‘I was at the highest point of my career as a professional athelete in Poland. That’s when I played my best football and was the most recognizable I have ever been. The Paparazzi would follow me in disco’s and shops, while the press would write about my private life.’ I also remember the Zurek that I loved to eat a lot of.
Roger has made 25 appearances for the Polish national team. He spoke about how he found it and how his teammates treated him.
‘At that time the national team had a lot of players who were over 30 years old, so despite being in my mid twenties, I was considered a youngster in the team, but guys like Jacek Baak, Michal Zewlakow and Jacek Krzynowek were very friendly to me. On my birthday, the team prepared a cake for me in the hotel and sang ‘sto lat.’
The 32-year-old also mentioned what it was like to meet the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski.
‘I remember when the president got my name wrong. I met the president three times. He was very nice and always complimented me.’
So Roger has declared that he would be happy to return to Poland, but whether any club will make him an offer is another story.
Many feel he is past his best and his presence at a Polish club wouldn’t be beneficial.
