A report from The Athletic has explained what Robert Lewandowski asked Matty Cash when the former Nottingham Forest man reported for Poland duty.

The 23-year-old was handed his first call-up by boss Paulo Sousa after switching his allegiance in recent weeks.

Cash, now with Aston Villa, qualifies for Poland through his mother’s side of the family and played the first half against Hungary on Monday.

It seems remarkable that prior to the 2019/20 campaign, Cash had never considered himself as a right-back.

Sabri Lamouchi had other ideas though and the Reds academy graduate hasn’t looked back.

Cash played 44 times for Forest during the 2019/20 campaign, subsequently earning a £16 million move to Villa.

There he has proved himself as a quality Premier League player and one who could go all the way to the top.

His first call-up for Poland saw him rub shoulders with elite player Robert Lewandowski.

The Athletic claims that the striker pulled him aside for a 30-minute chat following his arrival at the Poland camp.

He was thought to be keen to find out more about the Premier League and Cash’s family background.

Forest fans loved Cash when he was at the City Ground and there were plenty of proud supporters when he started for the first time on Monday.

Can Cash go all the way to the top after Forest exit

Without any shadow of a doubt, Cash is set for stardom. There could even come a point where he outgrows Villa.

It became a running joke during his time at Forest that there really was no surprise when he was selected in the Team of the Week.

He was truly incredible during 2019/20 and thoroughly deserved a move away from Forest.

Cash is continuing to grow and it’s actually really exciting from a Forest perspective to see how his career will now progress.

Lewandowski won’t be a bad role model and he’ll hope to play plenty of games alongside him in the future.
