Adrian Gula, 45, has received training in the past.inMSK Żilina, Slovak youth national team and most recently Viktoria Pilzno of the Czech Republic. This season, he led the Czech club to the National Cup final, but will not be able to lead the team in it. Slovakia was released in May due to poor league results (5th place). But as experts emphasized, this transfer can still be called a success. It is hard to imagine that a coach from a better league, better and richer club would go to Ekstraklasa.
Reports about Adrian Gula’s move to Poland have been around for a long time, but initially only appeared in the context of Jagiellonia Białystok. Jakub Seweryn was the first person to inform Slovakia of the possible transfer to Wisla Krakow.
The information was confirmed on Monday afternoon. Wisła Kraków announced the hiring of Adrian Gula as the first team coach via social media. The Slovak coach signed a two-year contract with the new club.
Wisła Kraków recently signed a new sports director, Tomasz Pasieczny, a former Arsenal scout. Adrian Gula will work with him to revolutionize the sports department of the club.
Taking Gula to Krakow was a blow. In the 2019/20 season, his Viktoria Pilzno competed with Slavia Prague for the Czech championship until the final rounds, but in the end it was definitely a stronger team from the capital that won the championship. Last season Gula reached the Czech Cup final with Victoria Pilzno, but due to the team’s weak performance in the league (fifth place), he will not be able to lead her in this game. After a 3-3 draw with FK Pribram in the league, he left the club on May 9. However, it cannot be said that his work for Victoria was unsuccessful because he scored a year and a half and averaged 2 points per game.
In turn, Gula won the Slovak championship in 2017 while working at MSK Żilina.Considered to be a giant at work, this coach’s biggest advantage is his offensive style game His team and good cooperation with young people. In Zilina, Milan Scrignar (now Inter Milan), Martin Dubravka (Newcastle), Laszlo Benes (Monchengladbach), Nicolas Spalek (Brescia) ) Or Denis Vavro (Lazio) and other players developed under his supervision. In the 2016-18 season alone, his transfer income reached 21.5 million euros.
