Poland appoints new boss

12 Jul 2018, 15:55

Jerzy Brzeczek has been appointed as the new Poland manager after The White and Reds produced a disappointing performance during the 2018 World Cup. 

Brzeczek succeeds Adam Nawalka, leaving his post with Wisla Plock. Nawalka ended his five-year stay at the helm after Poland finished at the bottom of Group H in Russia. The 47-year-old has extensive experience within the national team setup having won 42 caps during a playing career that included stints at Lech Poznan, Maccabi Haifa, and Sturm Graz.

He took his first steps into management with Rakow Czestochowa in 2010 and later took charge of Lechia Gdansk and GKS Katowice. The former midfielder guided Plock to fifth in the Ekstraklasa in his only season at the helm.

Brzeczek is also the uncle of Wolfsburg winger and current Poland international Jakub Blaszczykowski.
