    He appeared in the 1981 film Escape to Victory as Paul Wolcheck. In the same year, he emigrated to the USA, where he played for San Diego Sockers - for whom he had signed in January 1981 - and then the Legends San Diego. He died in a car accident while driving his favourite BMW on September 1, 1989, in San Diego, California.

    In 1994 he was chosen by the Polish Football Association (PZPN) and the readers of all Polish sports-related newspapers as the Polish Football Player of All Time.

    His number 10 is retired by Legia Warszawa.
