Medical tests turned out to be a formality and, as we wrote on Saturday evening, Bartosz Kopacz became a footballer from Zagłębie Lubin. The defender returns to “Miedziowe” after a year and a half break and will play for the well-known coach Piotr Stokowiec, who, together with the staff, took over Zagłębie again. This season, Kopacz played 14 times for Lechia Gdańsk, he is a universal player who can play both in the center of the defense and on the right side.
He is a 29-year-old player, so everyone in the Biało-Zielone ranks agrees that the PLN 1.2 million that Lechia will receive from Zagłębie is an extremely worthy amount and places Kopacz in the second ten highest transfers from Gdańsk in the entire history. Of course, transfer quotas in Poland are usually not given and sometimes it is difficult to find out their amount, but let’s base on media reports. In addition, we give amounts in euros, because the vast majority of transfers were to European clubs. Converted to the European currency, at today’s exchange rate, Kopacz cost the Zagłębie region around EUR 265,000. And here is the opening sequence:
1. Vanja Milinković-Savić – Torino – EUR 2.6 million
2. Paweł Dawidowicz – Benfica Lisbon – EUR 2.5 million
3. Karol Fila – Strasbourg – EUR 2 million
4. Lukas Haraslin – Sassuolo – EUR 2 million
