On Sunday, Legia Warszawa lost to Górnik Zabrze 2: 3 in the 15th round of the league. For the current Polish champions it was the seventh consecutive defeat in the league. This is the club’s worst franchise in 85 years! The last time that Legia was so bad was in 1936, when the only time she was relegated from the top league in the country.
Marek Gołębiewski’s team is in the penultimate place in the league. The legionaries scored just nine points in 13 matches. Two overdue matches, which only two months ago gave Legia hope to start a fight for the championship or European cups, today may be enough only to leave the relegation zone.
– It is a very difficult situation, but a few years ago I said that it would finally happen. People in Belgrade ask me about Legia because they are surprised by what is happening in the club. But it does not surprise me at all – in the “Football Section” program on Sport.pl said the former Legia player, Stanko Svitlica.
“A few years ago I said it would eventually happen”
And he added: – Now it is used to say that everyone can win with everyone, but when I see how many defeats Legia has already suffered this season, I am sad. It is difficult for me to talk about it, because when I look at the table, this place of Legia is not a catastrophe, it is a scandal.
– To this day, I watch every match of Legia and follow what is happening there. I read everything and I know what is happening in the club. Therefore, a few years ago I said that what is happening today will finally happen in Legia.
Who does Svitlica think is responsible for the current situation at the club? – It’s simple: sports director. He is responsible for who leads the team and what players come to it. I have been saying for a long time that it cannot be the case that every year the club changes its coach and 10-15 new players come to the team every six months. You can’t build a team this way. Especially such as Legia – concluded the former Legia striker.
