Jan Urban as a candidate for the selector? According to unofficial information, this idea is being pushed by the president of the Silesian Football Association, Henryk Kula. We managed to contact the vice president of the Polish Football Association, who briefly commented on these reports.
Henryk Kula is one of the most important provincial “barons” in the Polish Football Association and the vice president of the union for organizational and financial matters. It was he who was to suggest Cezary Kulesza to consider Jan Urban for the position of the coach of the Polish national team. So we contacted him to ask why he thinks the coach of Górnik Zabrze would be a good candidate for this position.
– It’s not true, I don’t think so. I’m not forcing anyone. When I read these speculations, I just laugh. I approach it very calmly – provides the Kula.
– In the relationship, we have a rule that only the president speaks on the selection of a new selector. He is to introduce us to the candidate on the board, and I do not speak – added.
“The coach does not play, only the players”
Rumors of Urban’s consideration can therefore be put among fairy tales. The main favorite for the post after Paulo Sousa is the former coach of Górnik and former coach – Adam Nawałka. He returns from vacation on Thursday and is to meet Kulesza this week. And the board members are patiently waiting for whom the president will choose …
– I don’t have social media, I don’t read, I don’t follow. I have a job that I am trying to do well. Just like you, I only wish that we would not get a cold, but go to Qatar. And in the end, it is not the manager who plays, but the players – emphasizes Kula, who has been leading the Silesian Union of Poles since 2016.
