Piszek spent 11 years at Borussia Dortmund. During this time, he had the opportunity to play at the highest level against the best players in the world. The 36-year-old still remembers the duels with Frankie Ribery.
As he admits, in one of the matches he made fun of his famous rival. However, he soon regretted this, because the Frenchman gave a sample of his abilities after a while.
– There was one man at Bayern Munich. I knew he could push me to the ground, but I also knew I could stop him. We had some nice duels with Remry. We had one match like this in Munich. I think we lost 5:1 – “Piszczu” started.
– At 1:1 I put a net for him in the center of the field. I dug it up and saw his face. Then in the 2:1 goal he turned me terribly into the penalty area. I thought: what is its purpose? – added.
Piszczek also spoke about his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo. Defensor also had the opportunity to play against Neymar.
– I have played Cristiano Ronaldo many times. We often found them in the Champions League. I loved facing him, I loved such challenges. This is the extra adrenaline – a statement.
– I also played Neymar. A match in Dortmund against Paris Saint-Germain before the epidemic. We won 2:1. I remember the situation in the middle of the field. He reached out and wanted to catch me, and I was killing him the whole time. I did not give up. Maybe he didn’t want to embarrass me, maybe he just wanted to show his strength in the fact that he could catch the ball. I didn’t do anything about it, I was fighting normally – Been completed.
