Dawid Kurminowski grew up in the youth sector of Warta Poznan in Poland where he reached the U19.
From here he moved to Lech Poznan who in his first season (2015/2016) made him play for the U19 where in 28 games he scored 21 goals. The following year Lech Poznan sent him with his team B to the Polish fourth level where in 28 appearances he scored 10 goals. In the first 16 games of the 2017/2018 season he stamps the card 7 times and so in the middle of the season the Slovakian team Zemplin Michalovce decides to borrow him.
He made his debut in Fortuna Liga on his 19th birthday against Dunajska Streda. Until the end of the season he takes the field 7 times scoring 3 goals. The 2018/2019 starts with 20 appearances, 4 goals and 1 assist between league and cup in Slovakia but in January he moved back on loan to the second team of Zilina, militant in the Slovakian Serie B. Here he scores 4 goals in 9 appearances until the end of the season and 9 goals + 4 assists in the 12 games played until the following January.
Given the numbers, Zilina decides to buy him for € 250,000 from Lech Poznan and promote him to the first team. He ends the season with 12 appearances and 4 goals in Fortuna Liga while starting the next one playing on 27/08/2020 in the Qualifiers for the Europa League. His record in the current season is 14 goals and 5 assists in 30 league and cup matches.
Dawid Kurminowski also played for all of Poland's national youth teams from U16 to U20, making 20 appearances and 5 goals. Between October and November 2020 he played 2 games and provided 1 assist with the U21 in the qualifiers for the European category.
Dawid Kurminowski is a right foot forward who starts from the middle position but can play on the whole attacking front. He has an excellent physical structure that allows him to withstand contrasts with opponents, to protect the ball well and to assert himself in the opponent's penalty area with head shots where he has a great timing and elevation. It makes its strong point the unmarking, both in the area and outside the area, through movements performed with the right times in the right place, in depth if the ball is uncovered or encountered to offer support to teammates and give breath to the maneuver. In the latter case you can see his great vision of the game and the knowledge of the same, where many times with a single touch he manages to send his teammate oriented towards the goal. He has good long-range speed, excellent dribbling but as for the best forwards the difference is the coldness and the sense of goal in the opponent's area, he bets on the defender's mistake and goes to the goalkeeper's rebounds. All this is allowed thanks to a remarkable basic technique with both feet that allows him to triangulate with his teammates, provide him with assists or kick at goal even from outside the area.
