The employment of Maciej Skorża by the authorities of Lech Poznań in April this year caused staff changes. The club from the capital of Greater Poland resigned from the services of Karlo Muhar and Djordje Crnomarkovic, who were loaned to CSKA Sofia and Zagłębie Lubin, respectively. Joao Amaral, who spent the previous season in the Portuguese Pacos de Ferreira, received a second chance from the coach. And for now, the midfielder is making full use of her.
Joao Amaral will sign a new contract with Lech Poznań. The announcement before Christmas
“Gazeta Wyborcza” informs that the talks between Lech Poznań and Joao Amaral regarding the new contract are going in the right direction and the agreement between the parties seems to be getting closer. The last details have to be agreed and it should not be ruled out that the official announcement regarding the Portuguese contract will appear before Christmas.
At the beginning of November, the portal “WP Sportowe Fakty” announced that Joao Amaral’s situation is being watched by clubs from the American and Japanese league, which may offer him a higher salary than the one he gets in Kolejorz, but the player himself is not interested in moving. The current contract of the Portuguese midfielder with Lech Poznań is valid until the end of June next year.
Joao Amaral is one of the best Ekstraklasa players this season. The 30-year-old played in 17 games against Lech Poznań in all competitions, in which he scored seven goals and recorded five assists. Only Erik Exposito from Śląsk Wrocław (9) and Mikael Ishak, Amaral’s club friend (8) have more goals in the league than the Portuguese.
