Poland coach Mikhnevich said that the removal of Rybus from the World Cup was his decision
The head coach of the Polish national football team, Cheslav Mikhnevich, spoke about the suspension of the midfielder of the Moscow “Spartak” Maciej Rybus from playing for the national team. It is reported by Sport.pl.
The specialist explained that the refusal to invite a football player to the World Cup was his personal decision. “His wife did not want to go to Poland, so he had to make a difficult choice. He was sympathetic to my decision,” Mikhnevich said. The coach also stressed that Rybus could return to the team in the future.
The removal of Rybus from playing for the Polish national team due to the transfer to the Russian club became known on June 20. The football player will not be called up to the September national team camp, and will also miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Rybus moved from Lokomotiv to Spartak on June 11. The player’s contract runs until 2024. He played 66 matches for the Polish national team. The defender has two goals and 14 assists.
