Gerard Józef Cieślik was one of the greatest Polish footballers. Gienek was small but very talented striker who played as inside forward or centre forward. Player with impeccable technique, elegant and gracious movements. It's interesting he was very good in aerial play despite the short size. His shots weren't too strong but highly precise and efficient, he was also excellent in overhead kicks. Adventure Gerard Cieslik from Chorzów club started with a small - as a child and living near the stadium Movement "at the Kalina", he went to train the first team "Blue". So really wanted to kick a leather ball, we have trained professionals that stand behind the goal and giving them kicked her in order to specifically hit the crossbar, the ball came back to him. In 1939, Gerard Cieslik went to the team footballers Movement, in which he played throughout his 20-year fighting career. Despite the fact that he won in the colors of the Movement in official meetings until 177 goals (including 167 in the league), only twice was the top scorer of the league (in 1952 and 1953). Ten times in a row, however, (from 1948 to 1957) was the top scorer of the Movement - in 1953 until he scored 24 goals! Gerard Cieslik reached three times with the Movement of the Polish Championship - in 1951, 1952 and 1953. In '51 he won the "Blue" Polish Cup. Good game Cieslik, and the entire team made the drużynowymi together with four colleagues, he found himself in the team for the Olympic Games in Helsinki in 1952. Cieslik occurred in the Polish national team 45 times - scoring 27 goals. The two most famous - the Soviet goalkeeper in match Poland - Soviet Union at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzow. October 20, 1957, the Poles won 2-1, and the most famous and best goalkeeper of the world - Lev Yashin capitulated after two shots striker Movement. For his performances in the Polish national team and was awarded the Distinguished Club became a member of the Representative, which is the only one having to his credit less than 60 performances with an eagle on his chest. In 1969 he was voted the best footballer of the 50th anniversary of the Polish Football Association. 25 years later, took fifth place. During the 20-year-old, faithful chorzowskiemu Movement, Cieslik career was tempted by other clubs - including proposals had from Scotland, the United States and Belgium. I almost was player of the Central Military Sports Club Warsaw - but the order of the Marshal Rokossovsky meant that he had been in the Movement. In Motion, who remained faithful, in 1961, he ran even for a short period of time the band "Blue" in the league. In 1999 he was awarded the Commander's Cross of the Order of Polish Rebirth.
