POZNAN, Poland. April 1 (PSN) – Adam Nawalka has been sacked by Lech Poznan after a string of poor results.

Lech management decided that the recent goalless draw with Korona Kielce was the last straw and have ended their relationship immediately with the former Poland national team coach.

Nawalka took over Lech at the end of November of last year. He led the team in 11 league games, in which he had 5 wins, 1 tie and 5 defeats.

However, in the spring round things began to worsen. As the Poznan outfit had only won 2 out of their 7 games played. Despite not losing in the last match against Korona Kielce, the Kolejorz played very poorly and were lucky to leave that game with a draw.

After the recent lackluster results, the Lech board together with general manager Tomasz Rzasa decided to react, parting ways with the 61-year-old.

“We have great respect for coach Adam Nawalka, which is why this decision was not easy for us. Both the coach and us were well aware that not only the results, but also the attitude of the team was far from our expectations. We thank the coach for the great commitment and work he has done for the club in these past few months. We wish him the best of luck in his future coaching endeavors.” said Karol Klimczak, the Lech president.

Dariusz Zuraw will once again take over as caretaker, at least until the end of the season. He previously coached Lech reserves who play in the Polish third-league.
