Poland is an awesome nation known for its fantastic exports: agriculture, machinery, and most importantly, goalkeepers. Mateusz Górski is the first foreign player to make the list, having recently made a move from Wrocław Academy in his home country. The 17-year-old shot-stopper has me extremely excited; from what I’ve seen (on grainy YouTube videos) he is a fantastic sweeper-keeper.
Born in the Polish town Duszniki-Zdrój on the border of Czechia, Górski has grown up in a youth system at Wrocław that seems to exist for the sole reason of developing young players so they can build successful careers. Górski’s transfer to Ajax has made everyone at the club proud. The training clips of the keeper show his unwavering work ethic, great reactions, and confidence to play outside the box, both literally and figuratively. Ajax looks to have a superb goalkeeper on its hands, and it’s only a matter of time until we get to see him in action for our youth teams.
