“El Polaco” leaves the club he made his professional debut for in 2014
Francisco Fydriszewski has left Newell’s Old Boys after the player rejected a contract extension and requested a mutual termination.
He was contracted to Newell’s until June 2021 but signalled his intention to leave the club after returning from a loan spell with LDU Portoviejo of Ecuador in which he scored 13 goals in 28 games.
Since debuting for Newell’s Old Boys in 2014, the forward known as “El Polaco” (due to his Polish ancestry) has found opportunities hard to come by at the Estadio Marcelo Bielsa.
In between short periods of playing for La Lepra, he has had loan spells in Chile, Spain and his home country of Argentina. His most successful loan spell was with Argentinos Juniors in 2016-17 as his 17 goals in 36 games helped Los Bichos gain promotion back to the Primera División.
Newell’s Old Boys will be due $150,000 in compensation due to the early termination of his contract, as per the announcement on the official Newell’s website.
“El Polaco” will always be a Leper and we look forward to following his next step in professional football.
