Last season, Kochanovsky won the deputy championship and the Polish Cup with ZAKSA, and also won the Champions League. These are the best months of the 2018 World Championship Club career so far.
However, there have been negotiations between many clubs in the middle of the season, and among the rumors about many volleyball players leaving Kędzierzyn, there are also rumors about Kochanowski. On Tuesday, ZAKSA officially confirmed that players will leave.
“After playing for Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle for a year, Jakub Kochanowski changed the color of the club”-we read in the announcement on the club’s official website. -As a competitor, I am definitely more experienced, especially on the international stage, but as a person, I haven’t changed much. Maybe I have more confidence in my work. Most importantly, this time spent at ZAKSA allowed me to realize one of my biggest sports dreams, which is to win the Champions League trophy. I think every volleyball player dreams of it. Coming to Kędzierzyn-Koźle, I don’t even think we can do it, but as time goes by, as our athletic level improves, we believe we can win this game-the player quoted in the club bulletin said.
I am very happy that this is how we ended this season, and this may be the most valuable thing we can accomplish through ZAKSA. Of course, after such a success, it is much harder to leave the club, because it is known that such a decision is faster than the end of the season. At the moment you achieve the greatest success that club volleyball can provide, it is very difficult to break the continuity of such a team and say goodbye to the people you have achieved. Unfortunately, this is the case, which is certainly not an easy task for me-Kochanovsky added.
According to unofficial sources, the intermediary is about to join Asseco Resovia Rzeszów. Before joining ZAKSA, Kochanowski played for PGE Skra Bełchatów and Indykpol AZS Olsztyn for two years. Three years ago, he made his debut in the Polish national team and won the gold medal in the 2018 World Championships with her.
