Majecki Delivers for Monaco When Called Upon

AS Monaco has a reputation for nurturing top-tier young talent, and goalkeeper Radosław Majecki is the newest standout. After one season in Belgium, the 24-year-old has stepped up this season, delivering impressive performances when called upon.

Majecki made the move to Monaco in 2020 after honing his skills at Legia Warsaw. He worked his way up through their youth system, the reserve team, and the first team. 

Transitioning to Ligue 1 marked a significant milestone in his career development, and Monaco opted for a patient and gradual approach to nurturing his growth. 

The Polish goalkeeper was the preferred starting goalkeeper for the Rouge et Blanc in the Coupe de France during the 2020–21 and 2021-22 seasons, playing a crucial role in Monaco's journey to the 2021 final.

For the 2022-23 season, Majecki went on loan to Cercle Brugge for more playing time as a starting goalkeeper. During his time in Belgium, Majecki played in 34 matches across all competitions and managed to keep nine clean sheets, helping the team reach the playoffs for the first time in five seasons.

Upon returning to Monaco after the loan spell, he once again made an impact in the Coupe de France this season with a standout performance in the Round of 64 clash against RC Lens. 

He pulled off five saves in the regular 90 minutes and followed it up with two crucial saves in the penalty shootout, leaving manager Adi Hütter speechless and helping his team advance.

"I have also never seen a penalty shootout like this, with a lot of misses but also a lot of saves. I would like to congratulate Radoslaw Majecki."

While Philipp Köhn takes the starting role in league play, Majecki did get a surprise start this past weekend against RC Lens and again had a standout performance, making eight saves in the 3-2 win over Lens and proving that Hütter has great depth at his disposal.
