Forgotten Manchester United academy product Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has left England to move abroad

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, a former product of the Manchester United academy, has decided to leave his home country and move overseas. 

The defender had most recently been playing for Burton Albion but was released by the club after the 2022/2023 season, leaving him in search of a new team.

Borthwick-Jackson’s journey with Manchester United began at the young age of six when he joined their academy. Progressing through the ranks, he earned his chance to make his senior debut under Louis van Gaal in November 2015. 

His impressive performances led to 14 appearances in various competitions during that season. Now, eight years later, he has taken a step abroad and signed with a club in the Ekstraklasa league.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson moves to Śląsk Wrocław

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has found a new team in the Polish First Division, Ekstraklasa, where he will be playing for Śląsk Wrocław.

 The club released a video to greet the English full-back, showing him at the center of their pitch, proudly waving a flag adorned with the team’s colors.

The now 26-year-old Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s move to Śląsk Wrocław marks an intriguing shift in his career.

 Until now, he has exclusively played in England, representing various clubs such as Wolves, Leeds, Scunthorpe, Tranmere, Oldham, and Burton Albion. 

However, in order to rejuvenate his career, a bold change was likely needed. We extend our best wishes to Cameron for a successful and fulfilling journey with his new team!

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was once ‘rated higher than Rashford’

Only six years ago, he secured the top spot on SciSports‘ list of the top 30 up-and-coming talents in European football, which was solely based on their potential. 

He ranked higher than remarkable players like Marcus Rashford and Donny van de Beek from Manchester United, as well as other outstanding talents in European football such as Theo Hernandez, Ousmane Dembele, Martin Odegaard, and Youri Tielemans!

Looking back at that now seems amusing, but during his first season at Manchester United, he truly stood out. Poland, get ready to witness some fantastic left-footed crosses in the Ekstraklasa!
