Must read

Since Kamil Glik is no longer in the lineup, we still haven’t found a defensive leader. It seemed that it could be Jan Bednarek, but the reality turned out to be different. Marek Kozminski has indicated who could take on this role during Euro 2024.

The Polish national team qualified for Euro 2024 after a penalty in the play-off final against Wales. The decisive eleven of Daniel James was saved by Wojciech Szczęsny, who again became the hero of the white-red team. However, instead of talking about the promotion, there is more discussion about Jan Bednarek, who, according to many experts and fans, should not be the main stopper. Coach Michal Probež came to the defense of the defender and, according to him, the criticism is gradually developing into rudeness. “I think we are really crossing a certain line with Janek, and indeed, if we have already been promoted, let’s also console this player and not make him a scapegoat,” he admitted.

Is criticism of Jan Bednarek justified?

Is criticism of Jan Bednarek justified? On this topic, Fakt journalists spoke with Marek Kozminski, a former representative of Poland and an activist of POPN. “I think we expected too much from him and he’s not the player we thought he was,” he said.

— He played at the World Cup in Russia and scored a goal for Japan. He then made some good plays and we thought he would be the anchor and leader of our defense. But that’s not the case and probably won’t be the case anymore,” he added.

He can become the new leader of the Polish national team’s defense.

Marek Kozminski stressed that Jan Bednarek did not screw up anything in the match with Wales, although he was criticized. – He was criticized for his actions in which Wojtek Szczesny was forced to save himself by running out of the gate, but it was a misunderstanding, not a zero-sum situation. He played normally and was absolutely not a negative character, he noted.

In the match against Wales, Jan Bednarek was replaced by Bartosz Salamon. According to a former Polish representative, the Lech Poznan defender made a better impression than his Southampton counterpart. “With him, everything was more organized.” In my opinion, Salamon could become the leader of our defense at the European Championships,” he concluded.
