Fernando Santos will become the new head coach of the Polish national team. The saga with the selection of the new coach of the Polish team lasted a long time, but finally ended on Monday, January 23, when he will be presented at a press conference on Tuesday. On Monday evening, Cezary Kulesza posted a photo with the new coach on Twitter.
Boniek commented on the choice of the new coach
Zbigniew Boniek has already welcomed the new coach on Twitter. Earlier, the former president of PZPN congratulated Kulesza on his choice. This was before it was known that Santos would lead the national team. Boniek spoke more about this choice in an interview with Roman Kołtoń in the program “”.
– He’s an interesting candidate. I like it. I see in him experience, wisdom, intelligence, a man who likes to play defensive football. His football is defensive but well structured. The defense is to be good on the counterattack and score goals – said Boniek.
– Before the program I took the liberty of calling one of the most successful Portuguese footballers who are no longer playing today, who is a good friend of mine. We see each other often on the Executive Committee [UEFA]. He’s in big football. And I asked, “What do you think about Santos? Give me some more information because I don’t know everything.” And he said only positive things. A charismatic guy who knows his stuff. In Portugal they also cried that they played too little offensively, but they win. They made the Nations League, the European Championship. They left the group everywhere. Sure, in some cases they hoped for something more, but I think the entrance is good – revealed the former president of PZPN.
– It’s not a blind date. You take a man who knows what’s up. This is not a risk, on the contrary. This is a smart, cool, excellent move. Since PZPN and the president of Kulesza came to the conclusion that they want a foreign coach, it can be said that it was one of the biggest names on the market – he added.
Fernando Santos will be officially unveiled at a press conference on Tuesday at 1pm. The guests of Dominik Wardzichowski, journalist of Sport.pl, were: Maciej Bartoszek, former coach of Polish clubs, Marcin Borzęcki, Viaplay journalist, and Jacek Krzynówek, an outstanding representative of Poland.
