What happened to Jagiellonia?!
I was worried they would slowly fade away but last year they won the title again and proved me wrong In 2027/28 they got only one point in Champions League group consisting of Real Madrid, Celtic and AEK which was a shame. Year later they managed third place in CL group with Porto, Liverpool and Dinamo Zagreb but then lost in the first round of KO against Düsseldorf. 2029/30 saw Jagiellonia finish third in EL group with Dinamo Moscow, Athletic Bilbao and Salzburg, advancing to Europa Conference where they managed to reach finals where they lost 4-1 to Frankfurt. On their way they advanced past Altach, Austria, Legia and Valencia. Last season they easily advanced from 1st place in EL group with Gorica, Frankfurt and Gent just to lose to Sevilla in 1st KO round.
The core of the team seems to be similar to when I left with Zurawski, Heidenreich, Kubica, Kowalczyk and Bida. Sobczyk is also someone I brought in even though he joined after I resigned. I am surprised that Kubica is still in the club, I thought he would be far, far away at this point. He is now a starter for Poland, Jagiellonia captain, best Ekstraklasa player and he's worth 13m.
What happened to the rest?
Amine Essahel left Jagiellonia for Newcastle in 2023 for 7mil after making 65 appearances and scoring 28 goals. For Newcastle Amine made 78 appearances and scored 19 goals. In 2026 he joined RB Leipzig for 26m and made 90 league appearances and scored 13 goals, helping the team secure DFB-Pokal win in 2029. After that he joined Arsenal for 14m before last season but has yet to make a league appearance for the club. He played 89 matches for Morocco and scored 15 goals, he was also three times shortlisted for African Player of the Year.
Luka Uzelac left Jagiellonia year after Essahel for Gladbach where he never really became a starting player so Gladbach sold him to Hannover where he established himself before getting bought by Leeds for 6m in 2026. Since then he made 157 appearances for Leeds in both Premier League and Championship. He played 67 games for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Matevž Vučkovič also left for Gladbach and ever since that he played for five teams in six years, namely Leeds, Hamburger, Almeria and Düsseldorf. 59 appearances and 10 goals for Slovenia.
Following players left after I departured the club:
Nelson Alvarez went through San Sebastian and Girona before establishing himself as starting player for Crystal Palace in PL. He has never started for Uruguay.
Gojko Manojlovič joined AC Milan from Jagiellonia but made only two appearances before he was sold to Sampdoria. After two season in Genoa he was sent to Aston Villa as part of the exchange and is now a squad player. He has made 21 appearances for Serbia.
Dominik Filipp was bought by Bayern for 5m and made twelve appearances for the Bavorian club. Filipp joined his current club Schalke 04 in 2029 for 17m and so far made 32 appearances for the club.

Karel Javorek also joined Schalke 04 for 18m in 2029 and became starting player for the club. Schalke's old manager, Phillip Cocu, must have really been a fan of mine
