Anderlecht cult hero Marcin Wasilewski (40) stops playing football | football

In six seasons at Anderlecht (2007-2013), Marcin Wasilewski became a true cult hero at the right back. In 2009, his career seemed to be over after he suffered a double fracture in a tough tackle by Axel Witsel in a duel against Standard.

Wasilewski recovered from the terrible injury and was back on the field in May 2010. In 2013, the Pole closed the door of the Astrid Park behind him after four titles with Anderlecht for an adventure at Leicester City, at that time second division in England.

After promotion to the Premier League in his first season, Wasilewski experienced the fairytale of the Foxes up close in the 2015-2016 season. Leicester, with Wasilewski rarely on the field, crowned himself the English champion against all odds.

In 2017, his expiring contract was not renewed and he returned to his home country, where he played football with Wisla Krakau until last summer.
