Piotr Leciejewski (born 23 March 1985 in Legnica) is a Polish professional football goalkeeper who currently plays for Norwegian Super League side Brann.

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

He impressed instantly with his explosive reflexes, and was one of Sogndal's best players when he arrived. In the 2010 season he saved 5 out of 5 penalties.

On 19 August 2010, rumors claimed that English champions Chelsea were interested in the Polish keeper.[1]

Leciejewski moved from Sogndal to Brann after the 2010-season, in an exchange-deal where Kenneth Udjus and Cato Hansen moved the other way.[2] He made his debut for Brann in the fifth league-match of the 2011-season against Molde,[3] and despite conceding three goals in his debut,[4] Leciejewski soon displaced displacing Håkon Opdal, Brann's first-choice goalkeeper since 2004, as Brann's first-choice goalkeeper.[3][5] Leciejewski quickly became a fan favorite at Brann, and was awarded with the supporters Player of the Year-award in both the 2012- and 2013-season.[6][7]

On 3 November 2011, Leciejewski stated that he might be interested in playing for Norway national football team.[8]
