Since joining the club in 2020, Tomas Pekhart has been causing a sensation in Legia Warszawa. This season, he was not only the best scorer of the Polish championship, but also confidently went to the crown of the best scorer of Estraklasa. In 25 games in the highest league, he scored 22 goals, and Jakub Świerczok (Jakub Świerczok) led the second with 8 goals. In addition, he scored a goal each in the Polish Cup and Europa qualifiers. Unfortunately, it turns out that he will no longer have the opportunity to improve his achievements.
As Czesław Michniewicz told at a press conference before the match against Stal Mielec, Pekhart was injured in the match against Wisła Kraków last weekend. Injury is not dangerous, but the trainers do not want to risk their health, especially because the forward is preparing to participate in the 2020 European Cup with the Czech national team.
-Thomas suffered a minor injury after the match against Wisła Kraków. We hope he can heal him. Pekhart has been in contact with the coach of the Czech national team, which is preparing for the European Championship. They started preparing on May 24, and Tomas has hardly had a vacation in the past two years, and he has no time to rest-Michniewicz said. -We think this is a good time for him to recover and breathe. In the last meeting with Podbeskidzie, he will be with us. If Jakub Świerczok scores 6 goals in the next round, Tomek may play against Podbeskidzie. But if this does not happen, Tomek will not be playing this season-he added.
In addition, Legia’s coach also reminded people that after the European Championships, Pekhart will not have much time to rest, because Ekstraklasa (Ekstraklasa) and the European Cup qualifiers will start in July. -This is a conscious choice, we discussed yesterday, Thomas (Tomas) will make the decision together with his wife. The problem is that as soon as he comes back from the European Championships, we start betting. In July and August, we will have 16 games, one game every three days, every player must rest as much as possible to get into the season well-the coach concluded.
The meeting between Legia Warszawa and Stal Mielec is part of the 29th round of PKO BP Ekstraklasa and will start at 5:30 pm on May 9 (Sunday) at the stadium at Mielec Solskiego Street No. 1.
