Bartosz Bereszyński (born 12 July 1992) is a Polish international footballer who plays professionally for Sampdoria as a defender.

Club career

Born in Poznań, Bereszyński played youth football with TPS Winogrady Poznań, Poznaniak Poznań, Warta Poznań and Lech Poznań.[2] He played senior football with Lech Poznań, Warta Poznań and Legia Warsaw.[2][3] While with Lech Poznań, he played in the UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds.[4]

Bereszyński was sent off in the last round of the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League Group stage,[5] and was suspended for the next three European matches. He did not feature in the second round nor the first leg of the 3rd qualification round in the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League. However, as his club failed to include him in their squad registration for the second round matches, he had not finished his suspension when he came on as a sub in the 86th minute in the return leg against Celtic F.C. in the third round. Legia won the match 2–0, and 6–1 on aggregate. However, after considering the mistake, UEFA set the result to a 3–0 win for Celtic. This made the Scottish team winners on the away goals rule.[6]

In January 2017, Bereszyński moved to Italy signing four-and-a-half year deal with Sampdoria.[7]

International career

He made his senior international debut for Poland in 2013.[8]

In May 2018 he was named in Poland’s preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[9]
