PZPN Appoint Jerzy Brzeczek as New Poland Coach

WARSAW, Poland. July 12 (PSN) – Jerzy Brzeczek has become the new coach of the Poland national team – the Polish Football Association (PZPN) officially announced on Thursday.

Brzeczek will take over the role from Adam Nawalka whose contract expires on August 1.

The presentation for the new manager and his staff will take place during a press conference that is scheduled for July 23 at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw.

The 47-year-old since 2017 was the coach of LOTTO Ekstraklasa outfit Wisla Plock where he managed to place 5th place in the league last season, narrowly missing out on a UEFA Europa League spot.

Previously, Brzeczek also coached Rakow Czestochowa, Lechia Gdansk and GKS Katowice.

As a player, he was no stranger to playing on the international stage where he made 42 appearances and scored 2 goals for the bialo-czerwoni. He’s also the uncle of current Poland international and vice-captain, Jakub Blaszczykowski.

Cesare Prandelli, Gianni De Biasi, and Slaven Bilic were the other candidates in the running for the job.
