Radoslaw Majewski aims to prove he is a Premier League-class player during his season-long loan at Town.
The 27-year-old Polish international made a very favourable first impression by setting up Adam Hammill’s winner in the 1-0 friendly victory at Sheffield United just hours after signing from Nottingham Forest.
Things moved so quickly, in fact, that £1m-rated Majewski was on the training ground at Nottingham at 10am when he was supposed to be having a medical at PPG Canalside – but he raced up the motorway, put his autograph to some paperwork and then headed off to Bramall Lane with his new teammates.
Majewski, who knows Lee Peltier well from his loan at Forest from Leeds last season (and ex-City Ground man Joel Lynch too), speaks good English and explained: “I am here to play and make an impact for the team and, hopefully, I can help Huddersfield Town achieve their targets for the season.
“I know from last season that Huddersfield want to play good football and I know they have players in midfield who like to pass the ball and have good movement – and that’s what I really like.
“That’s the sort of football I like, with good players looking for movement and passing and the (No10) role is one that really suits me, so hopefully I can make an impact for the season.
“I really want to play in the Premier League and hopefully that is going to happen in the future, but in the meantime I am focused on playing for Huddersfield Town and doing what I can for the team.”
Majewski remembers his hat trick for Forest against Town two seasons ago and says he now hopes to re-balance the scales with some strikes in blue and white stripes.
“The fans might remember me for that, but I hope to be scoring some goals for them this season,” smiled the former Polonia Warsaw player, who will wear No45.
“I’m very happy to be here and with knowing Lee Peltier – who made a good impact at Forest last season – and Joel Lynch it has made it easier for me to settle in straight away.
“The other players too made me feel very welcome because they are very friendly, and it was good to be able to play straight away.
“I wasn’t expecting to because I was still on the training ground with Forest when I found out I should have been up here, but I turned up for the medical and then travelled for the game and everything happened so quickly.
“I didn’t have much time to think about the whole thing and about Huddersfield and the team, but I know they want to play good football and I am happy with that.”
Majewski was credited with the assist for Hammill’s goal – playing at right wing-back, Hammill also impressed and looked sharp – but manager Mark Robins’ latest arrival wasn’t as happy as you might have thought.
“I’m not really happy because I had a good situation to score,” said Majewski, whose initial shot was cleared from near the line before Hammill took advantage of hesitation in the United six-yard box to nip in and score, much to the delight of a strong Town following in a crowd of 4,111.
“I am probably going to remember that moment for a while, even though it is only a pre-season friendly, but sometimes these things happen.
“My real hope is that the goals will come during the season.”
