Legia Warsaw is still struggling with huge problems. The dismissal of Czesław Michniewicz did not improve the situation in the league, but only worsened it. Last weekend, the team currently temporarily led by Marek Gołębiewski suffered a seventh consecutive defeat in the league. Since the current reserve coach took over the reins in it, we managed to win only one match, after huge torments with the third league Skolwin Dawn in the Polish Cup.
Completely unprepared for such a crisis, the management of Legia still has a huge problem with finding a new coach. New candidates appear on the surname market, but there are no particulars. Marek Papshun from Raków Częstochowa has been the most talked about recently, but he denies that there is such a topic at all.
Legia is fighting for European cups this spring. “We are trying to get out of the mental pit”
Despite the enormous problems and the specter of relegation to the first league, Legia Warsaw still has a chance to play in European cups in the spring. On Wednesday, the Polish champions will face Leicester City in the fifth match of the Europa League group stage. In the first match played in the capital city, the team led by Czesław Michniewicz at that time achieved the impossible and defeated the English giant 1-0. Now, however, the situation is completely different and it seems that repeating such a result in England can be considered as a dream.
– We are trying to get out of the mental pit. In the last game, improvement was seen in the second half. We were close to scoring a point. Of course, victory would have been the best thing for us. You have to bite the grass and fight every game and the mental will go up for sure. I’m still enthusiastic, but the results don’t defend me. We lost 3 league matches out of 3, we only won the Polish Cup. This is the work of a trainer, we are still looking for the optimal combination. It was evident that after a few changes in Zabrze in the second half, the team started to function better. If I have such an opportunity, I will do everything to make this team rise – Marek Gołębiewski assured before the match.
