For Mendez, this is the third attempt at the Polish national team. He applied for the position of a coach in 2016, when Stephan Antiga left the team after the unsuccessful Olympics. Then Ferdinando De Giorgi got the job. As the Italian left, Mendez offered his services again but lost again, this time to Vital Heynen. In 2018, he became the coach of the Argentina national team, which he led, quite unexpectedly, to a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

Lorenzo Bernardi is also known to Polish fans. In 2010-2014, Jastrzębski Węgiel was in charge. In 2014, he won the bronze medal with the team in the Champions League, defeating Zenit Kazan. From 2016 to 2019, he drove Sir Safety Perugia until he was replaced by Vital Heynen. Currently, the Italian team, Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza, is training.

Andrea Gardini is also well known in Poland. In his coaching career, he has already led Indykpol AZS Olsztyn, Zaksa Kędzierzyn-Koźle, and since January this year he has been a trainer of Jastrzębski Węgiel. In 2011-2013 he worked with the staff – he was an assistant to Andrea Anastasi.
