Borussia Dortmund have prolonged the deal of right-back Lukasz Piszczek for another year until 2019.
On Thursday, Lukasz Piszczek put pen to paper extending his current deal that was valid until 2018 for another year. The Polish right-back joined the Ruhr Side in 2010 on a free from Hertha Berlin and has become an integral part of Dortmund’s right side ever since. The former striker was moulded into one of the Bundesliga’s best right-backs at Dortmund and was an ever-present part of the team that won the German championship in 2011 and in 2012, including the double, and became a Champions Leauge finalist in 2013.
“I’m very happy about the trust BVB is showing me and I’m honestly proud to play at least two more seasons in the yellow dress in front of our great fans,” the 31-year-old was quoted on the club’s own website.
Sporting director Michael Zorc: “Piszczu is a prime example of a professional footballer and a role model, especially for our many young players. Since joining the club he has developed into a leading figure on and off the pitch.”
