Rafał Strączek has had great weeks in the Polish Premier League. Only in the match against Bruk-Bet Termalika Nieciecza did he save two penalties, saving his team’s victory. In the current season, he has kept five clean sheets for Stal Mielec. Including Thanks to his interventions, Stal ranks eighth in the league table.

At that time, however, he did not say where the Pole would continue his career.

This information was provided by the French journalist Clement Carpentier from the portal “20minutes.fr”. According to his information, Strączek is already in France. According to the French, the Pole is undergoing medical tests in Bordeaux, with which he is to sign a preliminary contract in the coming days.
However, this does not mean that the Pod will leave Stal Mielec now. According to Carpentier’s reports, the Pole will stay in the league until the end of the season, he will fulfill his contract to the end and will leave to France as a free player.
