It’s hard to believe today, but 16 years ago CSKA Moscow paid Legia Warszawa for Dawid Janczyk as much as 4.2 million euros. The pupil of Sandecja Nowy Sącz did not make a great career because he could not find himself outside the pitch. Alcoholism knocked him out of serious playing, although the striker visited some interesting places anyway. He performed in such clubs as KSC Lokeren, KTS Weszko, Odra Wodzisław, FC Blaubeuren, PFK Oleksandria, LZS Piotrówka and Korona Wilkowice. Recently, he represented the colors of Górnik Mysłowice.
The problem is that he still had bad days, which can be inferred from the strange videos he posted on the Internet. For example, it’s a movie, and you probably heard children in the background. – And screw everything. I’m a drunk and I’m okay with that,” he wrote on Instagram. A few days later, he explained that it was just a joke. It looks like the striker wants to focus on the ball again.
The former Polish representative is to become a new striker in the A class of GKS Raciborowice in Jelenia Góra – informs the bolec.info website.
At the halfway point of the A class games, it is in second place in the table. This is a club with big aspirations.
– We want to enter the Ekstraklasa by 2030. Talks with Dawid lasted from November, we agreed on the conditions and I believe that he is able to rebuild in Raciborowice and bring us to at least the second league – said businessman Marcin Pitera, who has been supporting the club financially for a year.
Janczyk’s sad story
Janczyk was the great hope of Polish football, but unfortunately he fell into alcoholism, which he told m.in. in the autobiography “My Confession” from September 2018. I just wanted to open up. And I opened up, but it was not easy to talk about total collapse, drinking and its consequences. Because this book is mainly about that. Not about Janczyk, a footballer, but Janczyk, an alcoholic who overdid his career and fell to the very bottom – said Bartłomiej Kubiak, a journalist from Sport.pl.
