About me » Best of...

The most important match:
Legia Warszawa vs. Lech Poznan 1:0, 01.06.2004. Despite defeat in a rematch, at the stadium at Łazienkowska Street we celebrated with Lech winning the Polish Cup.
Legia Warszawa vs. Zagłębie Lubin 1:2, 26.05.2007. We again sealed the national trophy with the team at Łazienkowska Street. This time victory in the match with Legia in the last round of the season led us to the Polish championship.

The most fondly remembered match:
Arka Gdynia vs. Jagiellonia Białystok, 13.08.2003. The delivery of  my second son, Jakub, started during the halftime of this match.

The most badly remembered match:
Legia Warszawa – Lech Poznań in the Polish Cup, 18.05.2005. The own goal in the 90. minute eliminated my team from the further participation in this football tournament.

The most important coach’s dream:
Leading the Polish national team

The best coach:
Rafael Benitez’s attachment of great significance to tactics and details; Jose Mourinho’s great charisma and self-confidence; Juergen Klinsmann’s enthusiasm and Felix Magath’s power of personality. I would like to combine these personality traits as a coach.

The best football players to train:

The European Championships 2008. The adventure of my life. During the European Championships I had a month stay in Austria with a great team of commentators set up by Polsat and Mateusz Borek.

The most interesting journey: 
The United States of America. The stay there was my dream that came true thanks to kindliness and the invitation from the representatives of the Chicago Eagles club, that is Jacek Tyszka and Tomek Drążek. I experienced the life over the ocean and met many wonderful people.

The best friend from a football pitch:
The whole team of the former Amika Wronki – among others, Mirosław Siara, Mirosław Kalita, Grzegorz Wódkiewicz, Paweł Kryszałowicz. We still stick together.

Quote of the Week

"A boy will not become a football player if his dad drives him to the training, picks him up after it and washes his shorts and shirt. This way you will not mould a character"
