Lech Poznań (Lech Poznań) did not perform well in the league. The team ranked 11th in the final table. Despite participating in the European Cup this fall, the impression of Poznan fans after the Lech game this season will be mostly negative.
At the end of the season, President Piotr Rutkowski mentioned the form of the Poznan team. -As the owner of the club, I am very disappointed and angry with what is happening before me. What bothers me most is not the loss, but the way we succumb to many times. You must call the shovel a shovel, it is insulting and failing the loser. In a club like Lech Poznań, this kind of thing is impossible. Okay, you can lose, we will lose more than one game, but not so! – Speaking in an interview on the WP Sportowe Fakty portal. -The famous display cabinet has been empty for six years. Of course, we are proud of the Europa League group stage, but it did not bring any trophies to the showcase we are talking about. We have to start filling it, but this will not be achieved only through conversation. Therefore, action is better than promise. -He added.
Rutkowski also talked about the criticism of his actions by fans. -A few years ago, I said that I will not give up and will keep coming back. There are many interesting memes related to this, and I keep getting some. But this is me. When it spit on my face, when I was blown by the wind, I would not kneel down. It inspired me more motivation and allowed me to prove that this is a great club and it will return to where it should be. We have been with Karol Klimczak since 2006 and we do our best in the club. It is normal to be responsible to us and to be criticized and hated. It is included in the work of a club as big as Lech. He pointed out that recently, unfortunately, we have obtained such an assessment ourselves.
President Lech also added that the sports director Tomasz Rząsa does not have to worry about work for the next season. -One person cannot be responsible for what happens in the club. Yes, the supervisor supervises the work of the coaching staff, but he neither trains nor decides to form-thinks Rutkowski of WP Sportowe Fakty.
What is Leahy’s goal for the next season? -We want to strengthen ourselves in almost all departments. I firmly believe that we will do it. We have sufficient resources. (…) I can confirm that in this window, we will spend the most money on transfers of all Polish clubs. We are interested in competing for the trophy-we want to win the Polish championship, we want the Polish Cup. Piotr Rutkowski said that we will not shy away from the statement.
