With World Cup and European Championship experience, Kamil Grosicki has all the attributes to be the best winger in the Sky Bet Championship.
Quick, skilful and with a fierce shot, many clubs were keen to acquire his talents but it was Hull City that won the race to land his signature in the final hours of the January 2017 transfer window.
His career had begun in his native Poland with hometown club Pogon Szczecin where he played as a youth before graduating to the first team. He was soon picked up by Legia Warsaw, signing for them in 2007, but his time with the Legionisci never really took off and he was loaned out to Swiss side Sion, around the time he made his first senior international appearance in 2008, before returning to Poland for a loan spell with Jagiellonia Bialystok. That became a permanent move in 2009 and Grosicki became a consistent figure in their side whilst also pushing his claims for regular inclusion in the national squad.
The winger was on his way to Turkey in 2011 as he signed for Super Lig side Sivasspor and he continued to impress, earning a place in Poland’s squad for Euro 2012 which was co-hosted by his country. He made one appearance in the tournament, coming off the bench against the Czech Republic.
On the club front, Grosicki went on to make more than 100 appearances for Sivasspor and scored 16 times before moving to France to join Rennes in 2014. He was a key player in Ligue 1, and also helped Rennes to the final of the Coupe de France. His reputation was also on the rise on the international scene as he played five times at Euro 2016 as Poland reached the quarter-finals.
After almost a century of appearances for Rennes, Grosicki was on the move to England and the Premier League as he joined the Tigers on a three-and-a-half year deal and he won the PFA Fans’ Premier League Player of the Month award in April.
Although he didn’t find the net in the top flight, Grosicki has scored some memorable goals in the second tier, including a stunning free kick in the draw at Birmingham City in November 2018, and he remains a player that opposition defences can’t afford to take their eyes off as part of a lively attacking line-up.
