During the offseason, Przemysław Frankowski was acquired by the Fire from Polish first-division club Jagiellonia Bialystok. It was seen as a pretty exciting signing, especially with the glaring hole that was left in the team when David Accam was traded away in 2018.

Frankowski has brought the speed and energy that has been missing ever since Accam left. So far this season, Frankowski has 2 goals and 7 assists, which is second-most on the Fire behind Nico Gaitan who has got himself 10. Frankowski is only 24, meaning that he still has years to improve. He will only get better from where he is right now, and if he stays around for a little while, he could become one of the leagues best-attacking players

Frankowski was born in Poland, which is where he spent his whole career prior to coming to Chicago. He spent 7 years playing in the Polish first-division, with a big part of that being with Jagiellonia Bialystok. Frankowski has 140 appearances for the club, as well as 24 goals.

Frankowski has played for the Poland national team with all the different age groups, but he got his first senior team call up in 2018. He has made 6 appearances since then, including minutes in the UEFA Nations League and UEFA Euro Qualifiers. For Poland, Frankowski has played with some of the world’s top talents including Robert Lewandowski and Krzysztof Piątek.

A player like Frankowski can bring a lot of good attributes to a team. He has the ability to dribble and get around players easily. And with his pace, he is deadly on the counter-attack. I had the opportunity to talk with Chicago Fire defender Jonathan Bornstein, where I asked him about the good things that Frankowski brings to the team.

Bornstein went on to say that, “the good things Frankowski brings to the team are his speed, versatility, and his ability to win attacking 1v1 opportunity’s. With those attributes, he helps create many offensive opportunities for the team”.

With his 2 goals and 7 assists, there is no doubt that Frankowski helps create many offensive opportunities for the Fire.

As well as adding positives and helping the team on the field, Frankowski adds positive and happy energy in the locker room.

I also had the chance to speak with Chicago Fire midfielder Brandt Bronico, where he said that “Frankowski is a quiet but funny guy to be around in the locker room. He usually always has a smile on his face”.

You always want somebody in the locker room that is smiling and is always willing to cheer somebody up. A key to a good team is to have good chemistry and vibes in the locker room.
