Radosław Matusiak (Polish pronunciation: [raˈdɔswav maˈtuɕak]; born January 1, 1982 in Łódź) is a Polish footballer who is currently playing for Cracovia Krakow.



Matusiak was part of the Polish U-16 team which placed second at Euro U-16 Cup in 1999. In 2006 he got his first senior international cap. He got his first senior goal on September 6, 2006 in a Euro 2008 qualifier against Serbia. On November 15 he also scored the only goal in a qualification match against Belgium in Brussels, keeping alive his country's hopes of qualifying.


Matusiak's contribution at the senior national team level caught the eyes of a handful of clubs in Europe during the winter transfer window. Speculation of the Polish striker joining Italian side U.S. Città di Palermo, third-placed in the Serie A league at the time, was finally realized, when on 30 January 2007 he was announced with the rosanero, after having signed a 3.5 year contract with the Sicilian club worth nearly 2 million euros. After a couple of substitute appearances, Matusiak made his debut in the starting lineup on May 13, 2007 in a league match against Ascoli, promptly scoring his first Serie A goal.

On August 24, 2007 Matusiak signed a three-year contact with an option for a fourth with Dutch side SC Heerenveen. In January 2008, however, he returned to Poland, being loaned for the duration of the season to Wisła Kraków. In the summer of 2008 his contract with Heerenveen was canceled by mutual agreement. He spent the first half of the 2008-09 season pursuing interests outside of football but rejected media reports that he had retired from the sport. On December 23, 2008 he signed with Widzew Łódź,[1] and since August 21, 2009, he has played for Cracovia Krakow, signing a two-year contract.
