Now he has revealed that he has no intention of signing a professional contract in Łódź, and with a number of clubs sniffing around looks to be off to Germany in the summer. So now is an excellent time to take a look back at Stępiński’s Ekstraklasa career.
EKSTRAKLASAreview and WeLoveBetting.co.uk have again teamed up to being you another of Chris Graham’s weekly Ekstraklasa picks. This week, he’s joining editor Ryan Hubbard in looking towards GKS Bełchatów’s trip to face Pogoń Szczecin.
