Whatever Pawel Cibicki achieves over the rest of his career, it seems highly unlikely that there will ever be many Leeds United fans who argue that he should have been given more of a chance at Elland Road.
The 26-year-old endured an extremely tough time following his switch in 2017. He made 10 appearances for the Whites in all competitions and spent the large majority of his spell out on loan.
Admittedly, there were a couple of glimpses of his quality. His cameo on the day Kemar Roofe bagged a hat-trick away at Queens Park Rangers hinted he could prove to be a good signing.
And he would provide his second assist for Leeds one week later. But that brief spell would prove to be a very false dawn for the forward.
He was loaned out three times before Leeds offloaded him permanently in January this year. He joined Polish side Pogon Szczecin.
Three goals in five games
And he has actually made a promising start to life with his new club.
It should be noted that Pogon have not won a game since Cibicki’s debut. On that occasion, the Swede bagged the late winner as his side came from 2-0 down.
But Cibicki has now scored three goals in five games, with his latest coming on Tuesday night. His record is all the more impressive given that he has started just two games for his new side.
With Patrick Bamford into double figures this season, Tyler Roberts scoring a wonderful brace at the weekend, and Jean-Kevin Augustin waiting to be properly unleashed, Leeds will certainly have no regrets about letting Cibicki go.
But they may well be pleased to see him hit the ground running after a move which clearly did no-one any favours.
