“Savior” Blaszczykowski Returns to Wisla Krakow

KRAKOW, Poland. February 8 (PSN) – Jakub Blaszczykowski has penned a contract with Wisla Krakow, Jaroslaw Krolewski confirmed via Twitter.

The Polish international returned to his beloved boyhood club where he first made his name in Polish football. He played for the White Star from 2004 to 2007, before making his career defining move to Borussia Dortmund.

Blaszczykowski agreed to a 6-month contract with Wisla, which will see him making 500 zloty (around £100) – the absolute minimum salary for a professional player. In addition, his wages will be entirely allocated to Wisla tickets for the children of the local Krakow orphanages.

It should be noted that Wisla’s new acquisition has been training since January with coach Maciej Stolarczyk’s team, having featured in several exhibition games wearing the captain’s armband. Along with this, the 32-year-old was also apart of the trio (like Krolewski) who helped financed the Krakow club with a loan. As a result of that, “Kuba” was made a board member of Wisla.

Most importantly, Błaszczykowski joins Wisla on a free transfer, after mutually terminating his contract with VfL Wolfsburg early last month.
