Biography

Born in Poland, Jarek signed his first professional deal with Bolton Wanderers of England at the age of 17 having played youth football in his native country until that time. He made only one league appearance for the Greater Manchester side, while also spending time on loan at Luton and Stockport. He spent the next three seasons at Polish side Slask Wroclaw where his form earned him U23 caps for his country, before a cruciate ligament injury sidelined his career and also put an end to a rumoured move to Celtic in 2012.

Taking almost a year to recover, Jarek moved onto Tromso in Norway where he would play a full season before being released. Joining on a two-year deal, Jarek then signed for United on a free transfer during the 2014-15 pre-season. He became a regular in the United back line and quickly became a favourite with the fans. In March, he collected a runners-up medal in the League Cup Final.

Having failed to settle in Scotland, Jarek left United after one season, agreeing a move to Pogon Szczecin on June 23, 2015.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Jarosław was born on this date in Legionowo, Poland.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Born in Poland, Jarek signed his first professional deal with Bolton Wanderers of England at the age of 17 having played youth football in his native country until that time. He made only one league appearance for the Greater Manchester side, while also spending time on loan at Luton and Stockport. He spent the next three seasons at Polish side Slask Wroclaw where his form earned him U23 caps for his country, before a cruciate ligament injury sidelined his career and also put an end to a rumoured move to Celtic in 2012.

  • United stormed to the top of the league on the opening weekend of the 2014/15 season with a stunning 3-0 away win at Pittodrie. United had failed to record a single victory against the Dons last season so it was always going to be a tough opening fixture for the tangerines. Jackie's first team selection of the season had a familiar look from middle to front, with the Manager sticking by players used extensively last season. However, at the back there were three debutants in the four man defence. Jarek Fojut and Callum Morris formed the central defensive partnership and Conor Townsend came in at left back. Former United man, David Goodwillie started up front for the Dons.

  • It was a day for debut goals as two recent signings opened their account for United and the Scottish Premiership's top scorer found the net again in a 3-0 victory at St Mirren Park. United made one change to the side that snatched a late victory against Ross County in their previous match. Chris Erskine was rewarded for his recent cameo goal scoring appearances with a place in the front four. Mario Bilate dropped to the bench.

  • United made seven changes coming into this one with youngsters Spittal, Connolly and Telfer all in the side. Motherwell made just the two changes.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 0 Dundee

    It was a scrappy start with Dundee doing most of the pressing but with their first foray into the opposition box the hosts went ahead in 8 minutes. Chris Erskine received the ball in midfield and lofted a pass to Nadir Ciftci in behind the Dundee defence. Goalkeeper Kyle Letheren rushed out to challenge but allowed the ball to slip by offering Nadir Çiftçi the easy task of slamming the ball into an empty net. The Dark Blues kept pushing forward without really hurting the hosts and as a result left plenty space for United on the counter. They were often caught with tangerine shirts bearing down on them and both Paul McGinn and Thomas Konrad were booked for cynical challenges during this spell. In the 28th minute Dundee had their best chance when Greg Stewart did well to beat Erskine at the bye line before laying back to Stephen McGinn whose shot was held by Rado Cierzniak at the second attempt. The visitors were left to rue this miss as the home side doubled their lead in the 28th minute. Robbie Muirhead held the ball up well before playing in Ciftci on the left edge of the area. As the Turk evaded Konrad in the box the defender was then adjudged to have brought his man down as Bobby Madden pointed to the spot. Despite already being on a yellow card there was no further punishment for the German. As he did at Dens in the last derby Nadir Çiftçi was as composed as could be as he sent Letheren the wrong way to score his and United’s second. The pattern remained the same for the rest of the half with Dundee continuing to win corners but never seriously bothering the goal and United always looking likely to score on the break.
