Jakub Kiwior, from undesirable in Anderlecht to Polish international

Jakub Kiwior, from undesirable in Anderlecht to Polish international


Defender Jakub Kiwior (22) experienced his first milestone on Saturday against the Netherlands (2-2). A far cry from his anonymous four-year stint at the RSCA.

The fiercest of Anderlecht supporters will have had a surprise watching the Polish eleven who challenged the Netherlands on Saturday in Rotterdam: Jakub Kiwior (22) celebrated his first cap on the left side of the defense. Yes, the same Jakub Kiwior who had finished his training at the RSCA between 2016 and 2019 before leaving free, deemed insufficient by the sports bosses.

What happened for the boy to become international A in Poland just three years later? “We can’t even speak of a meteoric progressionanswers Michel Thiry, his discoverer when he was a scout at Sporting. Jakub’s qualities were already present when he was at Anderlecht, with his power, size, speed and very good left foot.”
