Blaszczykowski hails 2012 as his best year

The Poland international reflected back on an unprecedented twelve months with Borussia Dortmund, and hinted that he would consider spending his entire career with his club
Borussia Dortmund winger Jakub Blaszczykowski has fondly reminisced his year under Jurgen Klopp's leadership, declaring it his best so far during his career.

The 27-year-old swept to Bundesliga and DFB Pokal success on the domestic front with his club, before enjoying a Euro 2012 outing with Poland.

"2012 was truly the best year of my career so far," Blaszczykowski told Kicker. "But I will not spend too much time with that memory, as I want to enjoy another best year of my career again soon.

"I used to score a lot of goals for Poland, but found it difficult with Dortmund. Now, Klopp often advises me to break into the box more often, and not to only remain on the wing.

"I was afforded my chances to, and took them. After waiting a long time, I have reached the next stage of my development.

"These days, we have become a dominant team, packing more quality on the ball. There are not many clubs like Borussia. Why should I leave if things continue going nicely?

"That would be something [if I signed a new contract]. I'd have spent my entire career here."

The fleet-footed attacker has been in fine form, registering eight goals and five assists in the Bundesliga this season.
