Pawel Abbott has joined Polish side Ruch Chorzow on a free transfer. Based in Upper Silesia, it is one of the more successful sides in Poland, having won the national championship 14 times. It was always the intention of the former Polish Under-21 player to return to his native heath when the right opportunity arose.
An additional attraction is that he has the possibility of being involved in the Polish set up for the European championship to be held there and in Ukraine. The move was possible because the Polish transfer window does not close until Monday.
Like many current Charlton players, Abbott got a high score for commitment and a lower one for skill. However, there were those who thought he could turn a game. I was more sceptical.
