Marcin Wasilewski (Polish pronunciation: [ˈmart͡ɕin vaɕiˈlɛfskʲi]; born 9 June 1980 in Kraków), commonly known as Wasyl, is a Polish defender who plays for Anderlecht and the Poland national football team. He is under contract with Anderlecht until 2013.

Career

Early in his career he played for Polish clubs Hutnik Kraków, Śląsk Wrocław, and Wisła Płock. In 2005, he moved to Amica Wronki which merged with Lech Poznań in 2006. In January 2007 he was acquired by the Belgian side Anderlecht.

Wasilewski is a right back. Despite being a defensive player, Wasilewski often scores goals. During the 2008–09 season, he was Anderlecht's third most prolific goalscorer, tied with one other player at 8 goals.

Leg injury

On 30 August 2009, Wasilewski suffered an open leg fracture in the 24th minute of the 1–1 Jupiler League draw between Anderlecht and Standard Liège when Liège's Axel Witsel made a challenge. Witsel was red carded for the offence. Wasilewski underwent corrective surgery for open fractures to both the tibia and fibula. Witsel was suspended for 8 games by the Belgian FA over the incident, after an appeal.[1]

After a long rehabilitation, Wasilewski made his return on 8 May 2010.[2] Wasilewski celebrated his return to Anderlecht's first eleven with the opening goal of his side's 2–1 win at SV Zulte Waregem.

His drive to return was rewarded with a new contract until the summer of 2013, with the club talking about him as "a club monument, who had to deliver an inhuman battle". [3]
