Kapustka Getting Career Back On Track

Kapustka Getting Career Back On Track

Leicester winger Bartosz Kapustka feels his loan spell at OH Leuven is helping him get his career back on track.

The Poland international originally moved to the King Power Stadium on the back of some impressive performances for his country at Euro 2016, but he has barely featured for the Foxes and spent last season on loan at German club Freiburg.

Kapustka also found opportunities hard to come by in Germany and, upon his return to Leicester last summer, he was loaned out to Belgian second division club Leuven, who are also owned by King Power.

The 22-year-old has featured regularly during his time in Belgium, scoring three goals in 18 league appearances to date, and he feels he is now getting his career back on track after a couple of years in the wilderness.

“I know that ultimately the second division is not a place for me, I have much higher ambitions, but I had to go back step by step,” Kapustka told the Leicester Mercury.

“The most important thing for me was to play and now I have secured it. “And form? When I compare my first match for Leuven with the later ones, the difference is visible. On the plus side.”

Kapustka is under contract with Leicester until the summer of 2021 and it remains to be seen whether he will be handed a first-team chance upon his return to the club.
