Former West Brom midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has revealed that he was given “no choice” but to join Albion last Summer on loan from his parent club Paris Saint-Germain.
Krychowiak joined Albion in what was considered a coup for Tony Pulis’ side. However, the Pole never really got going in the Black Country, and again left PSG on loan this season to join Lokomotiv Moscow.
Speaking to sport.pl’s Pawel Wilkowicz, Krychowiak revealed that PSG forced him to join Albion last Summer after his relationship soured with now Arsenal boss Unai Emery.
It was strange, I trusted PSG. At first, I was in a very comfortable situation. It was a new step in my career and a better team.
However, you cannot sign someone to a five-year contract and then tell him to leave after three months. That is not how it works. I did not deserve this treatment.
Instead, PSG wanted to sell me, so I told them that they had to find me a club because my agent could not. It took a long time and we had to wait until the end of the transfer window.
And then they loaned me anyway, but to England.
There was a moment when I told myself that I was going to remain at war with PSG because of their huge lack of respect. Ultimately, I had no choice but to go to West Bromwich Albion.
After appearing 31 times for Albion under three different managers, Krychowiak returned to PSG. He’s now on loan in Russia for Lokomotiv Moscow and will be hoping to re-ignite his career after a disappointing season in England.
