Malaga winger Bartlomiej Pawlowski insists he is going nowhere in light of recent speculation he is unhappy at a lack of game time.
The Polish Under-21 international, despite having quickly become a fans’ favourite at La Rosaleda, has struggled to cement a regular starting place under boss Bernd Schuster following his loan signing from Widzew Lodz before the start of this season.
However, Pawlowski says he has been handed a good opportunity with the Costa del Sol outfit and is determined to make the most of it, particularly if selected for Sunday’s Copa del Rey game at home to Osasuna.
“I always want to play and am training as hard as I can. If I get the chance then I’m going to do everything I can to take it,” he told reporters.
“This is a great opportunity for me coming to Malaga, somewhere I can improve and show my quality, so I’ve never at any time thought of leaving.
“Every game to me is important and everyone wants to win the Cup in any country. The last time we played Osasuna it was a difficult game and now we’ve got a second chance. I want to win it for our supporters.”
Pawlowski says he is surprised at the ease in which he has adapted to life in Spain and how quickly he has picked up the language.
“I’ve already been learning to speak Spanish for two-and-a-half months with a teacher and I do two sessions per week.
“But with the boss I prefer to speak in English. Sometimes I need to change languages to get him to understand me,” he explained.
