Jakub Błaszczykowski To Join Boyhood Club Wisla Krakow Without A Wage

Jakub Błaszczykowski is the definition of loyalty. The former Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg winger is on the verge of joining Wisla Krakow, a team who are on the verge of bankruptcy.

In the process, he will not receive a salary during his time at the club and on top of that, the Polish winger will assist the club financially, contributing around 1.3 million zloty (£300,000) of his own money to his former team.

That money will reportedly pay for outstanding wages. How incredible of a gesture is that? Take a bow, Kuba.

Dortmund tweeted the above earlier to pay their respect to Błaszczykowski, who spent nine years with the Bundesliga outfit, making over 200 appearances in total.

‘Kuba’ is the most capped player for Poland, making 104 appearances in total for his national side, but this recent gesture is by far his biggest achievement on a personal level.

He is currently training with the club, whom he spent three years with during his time as a youth prospect. Respect.

At the start of the month, former club Wolfsburg announced that they mutually agreed to terminate the player’s contract with immediate effect.

They later confirmed that the Poland international is presently in his homeland ahead of a potential transfer.

Take a bow, Kuba.
