OTHER Former Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk is quitting football at the age of 31. The Pole announced this over the weekend via his Instagram page. The many injuries of recent years led him to this decision.
"The past few years didn't go the way I wanted. I spent more time in the doctor's office than on the field. I tried and fought, but my body doesn't want to cooperate anymore," Teodorczyk wrote. "Thank you to all the good people I met along the way. Soccer gave me a new life. It gave me everything."
Teodorczyk played two seasons for Anderlecht, from 2016 to 2018. During that period, he scored as many as 45 goals. Especially in his first season, when Anderlecht rented the Pole from Dinamo Kiev, he was golden for Anderlecht. After Purple-White acquired him permanently in the summer of 2017, the club hoped to sell him for a lot of money. That didn't work out. In the end, Mogi Bayat guided him to Udinese in the summer of 2018 for around 7 million euros.
Due to injuries, his stay at Udinese was not a success. Even during a loan spell to Charleroi and half a year at Vicenza in Serie B, he barely broke through. Since last summer, Teodorczyk had been without a club.
