Magiera Returns Home to Take Over Legia Warsaw

WARSAW, Poland. September 24 (PSN) – Jacek Magiera is officially the new manager of Legia Warsaw.

With the capital club he signed a two-year contract with an option for another year – announced the official website of the Legion, “Legia.com.”

The 39-year-old last managed Zaglebie Sosnowiec in 1 Liga, which currently remains first in the league table without a loss recorded thus far.

“I am very glad that I came back home after a brief separation. The whole time Legia was in my heart. I knew I would eventually come back and I did everything to go in that direction. I hope we start something new here,” said coach Magiera during Saturday’s presentation.

Previously, Magiera was associated with Legia for many years – having worked on the coaching staff of the first team and then later as head coach of the reserves.

During his playing career for Legia, he played in 176 Ekstraklasa matches and scored 16 goals.

Magiera takes over for interim coach Aleksandar Vukovic, who took temporary care of the Legia first team after the relinquishing of Besnik Hasi’s duties with the club. Vukovic earned the Legion a point over the weekend with a 0:0 draw with bottom dwellers Wisla Krakow.
