Jan Urban Takes Over at Lech Poznan

POZNAN, Poland. October 14 (PSN) – Jan Urban was officially announced as the new coach of Lech Poznan this week, replacing Maciej Skorza.

Skorza was sacked from the head coach position a day before the reveal of change in coaching.

The new coach of Lech now intends to completely break with the style of play and tactics that Skorza favoured. The former Legia and Osasuna coach does not want to hear about conservatism and defensive assumptions anymore.

Lech under Urban is to play a much more offensively minded game.

From now on they are to dominate their opponent from the first to the last-minute of the match. No more waiting for what the opponent will do. Lech has to from the beginning impose their style of play and strive at all costs to score goals.

Now the motto of the Polish champion will be to take pleasure from the game. Urban hopes that liberating his players will allow Lech to overcome its current crisis.

With the new style of play, Lech is to finally score plenty of goals and win convincingly. A huge contrast compared to Skorza’s tenure. Especially this season, when Lech almost forgotten how to score goals and win games.

Now, things are to be quite different. At least in theory. As will be in practice, fans will see soon.

Urban’s first test with Lech will be in a few days where the Kolejorz take on Ruch Chorzow at the INEA Stadion on Saturday.
