Warsaw, Jan 19 (IANS) Poland national team coach Jerzy Brzeczek has been sacked, the Polish Football Association (PZPN) has announced on its official website.
Poland hired Brzeczek in July 2018 after the team failed to advance into the knockout stage of the World Cup. Brzeczek led the team to qualify for the UEFA Euro. However, his team was criticised due to the unsatisfied style of playing, reports Xinhua news agency.
“I’m terribly sorry because it’s not nice to say goodbye to the coach. It’s my decision, and I take responsibility for this decision,” PZPN president Zbigniew Boniek explained in the interview for Polish media sport.pl.
During UEFA Euro rescheduled for this summer, Poland will play against Spain, Sweden and Slovakia in their group.
