Official: Adam Nawalka is Lech Poznan’s New Manager

POZNAN, Poland. November 26 (PSN) – Adam Nawalka has signed a 2,5 year contract with Lech Poznan, becoming the new manager of the club.

Joining him at the Kolejorz will also be his coaching personnel from the Poland national team, which was one of the requirements Nawalka had before agreeing to sign on.

The 61-year-old’s coaching team includes Bogdan Zajac (assistant coach), Karol Bartkowiak (assistant coach), Jarosław Tkocz (goalkeeping coach), Remigiusz Rzepka (team fitness coordinator), Andrzej Kasprzak (fitness preparation coach), Stanisław Gadzinski (fitness training instructor), Pawel Frelik (mental coach), as well as Lukasz Siwecki and Hubert Baranski (analysts).

Negotiations between Lech and the former Poland coach were notoriously long and well publicized, taking about a total of 3 weeks due to Nawalka making several demands uncommonly seen by most coaches in Poland. These include bringing his entire coaching staff from his Poland tenure, high salary, as well deciding on which players get brought to the club.

Nawalka will take over for Dariusz Zuraw, who was the interim coach for the past several weeks.
