It was Boruc who delighted thousands of Legia fans with his excellent field behavior. Beloved in the fan community and always dedicated to Team Warsaw, today they invite you to the King’s Gala, an event dedicated to him, the King!

587 – King Arthur plays many official matches. During this time, he managed to win the Polish Championship twice, the Scottish Championship three times, the Scottish League Cup twice, and the Scottish Cup.

It was immediately obvious that this was a very strong character and personality. I immediately felt that he would be able to handle every match, and would not be afraid of responsibility for the outcome.
Boruc from Pogoń Siedlce came to Legia in an armchair placed on the back of a beetle. But over the years, the armchair turned into a throne, and King Arthur became a symbol of the Warsaw team. However, beginnings in Warsaw were not easy for the young goalkeeper. Boruc was loaned to Dolcan Ząbka, and had to wait two years for his debut in Legia. However, as he himself repeats: “Life teaches us to bend our foreheads sometimes and humbly wait for our opportunity.” He was ready for a moment, and it happened in a league competition against Pogoń Szczecin. then change Radostina Staneva Since then it has become a staple in the military goalkeeper. The talent and skills of the goalkeeper were quickly noticed by the Celtic hosts.

For many years of playing for the Scottish team, he played nearly 200 matches, keeping 77 clean sheets. In Scotland, he became a legend.

He is one of the best goalkeepers in recent years. At the time, he was one of the best goalkeepers in Europe. Celtic saved a lot of games. When the team did not play well, Boruc would defend three or four hundred percent of the opponent’s positions, then Celtic scored a random goal and won 1-0. There were many such matches. If he had then left for one of the biggest clubs in Europe, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone – In an interview with TVP Sport, the former Celtic footballer said, Kylian Sheridan.
Celtic is one of the most successful teams in Europe. Last season, boys They won the 52nd National Championship. Despite the club’s rich history, fans and fans did not forget about Boruc. To this day, songs dedicated to the legendary Legion can be heard on the streets of Glasgow.
