ZURICH, Switzerland. Mar 26 (PS) — Ryszard Komornicki’s coaching adventure within Polish football was not too successful. The coach after half a year working in Górnik Zabrze was sacked and has since returned to Switzerland.
Now he is convinced: Polish football does not know what is true professionalism.
“A Polish footballer especially does not know what is true professionalism and hard work. When a sport-tester assumes a heartbeat that comes to 140, the player will automatically stop and say that it is enough.”
“The height of dreams is a good deal for him, preferably a three year deal. This includes dyed blond hair, gel and a quick BMW or Audi. It may be several others, but they must agree the brand is good, because generally the idea is to impress others.” he adds.
The former Polish representative remembers the days when he played football. He argues that his generation saw a completely different sport, which was played with passion and commitment – that he see lacks in current players.
“There are exceptions, but for most, unfortunately, only think about money in their account to be on time. Polish football for me is sad and tragic.”
Last year, Komornicki worked with Gornik Zabrze, with whom he had to fight back promotion to the Polish Ekstraklasa. Weaker-than-expected results in the autumn round meant that he was quickly fired. As he sees it, the players themselves fired him.
“When a new coach comes players think that they will play like they want it with him. Soon no time at all they begin to moan and grumble that they do not correspond to your tactics and that training sessions are too heavy, and that the coach did not tell him how to play. There are coaches who can swim in these murky waters to work at the club for a few months longer. Yes, because there is no other way.” says Komornicki.
Komornicki recalls joining Gornik as coach where he was shocked by the level presented by some the Polish players.
“Most could not dribble a ball properly. I had a Polish international at Górnik, who would only twice hit the ball in the net from a very close distance. For me it is simple lack of skills.”
