QPR: Remember Pawel Wszolek? Here’s what he’s up to nowawdays

Published

Deadline day signings are always exciting, particularly when you bring in a relatively unknown winger with a good record in the Polish top flight. 

Pawel Wszolek was said wide man and though he was not a world-beater, his three seasons at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium were fairly satisfying.

If nothing else, he played a key part in the R’s 2-1 win against Fulham in 2016, which remains their last west London derby victory.

There were some gutted fans in W12 when ‘Pav’ departed in the summer of 2019 – Mark Warburton’s first at the club – with the winger’s contract not renewed by the Championship outfit.

He returned to his homeland later in the summer, signing for Legia Warsaw, and back in Ekstraklasa – the division that had brought the most productive seasons of his career – he once again was hugely impressive.

Wszolek added seven goals and nine assists in 2019/20 as he helped Legia Warsaw win the Polish top tier and reach the semi-finals of the Fortuna Polish Cup.

The 29-year-old was unable to help the club qualify for either the Champions League or the Europa League last term but he did help them win the Ekstraklasa again.

That form was not enough to earn him a Poland recall but he did secure a move to the Bundesliga with Union Berlin.

Have QPR ever won an away game at any of these 20 stadiums?

Have QPR ever won an away game at the Emirates Stadium - Yes or no?

Opportunities have been hard to come by since the move to Germany due in part to injury, however, and his only appearance so far has been as a substitute in his club’s DFB Pokal second round win against Waldhof Mannheim.

He’ll be hoping for more chances as the 2021/22 campaign wears on.
