Adam Nawałka has been out of work in football since 2019, when he was fired from Lech Poznań. The former coach of the Polish national team may return to the coaching bench. He held the first preliminary talks with one of the clubs he cooperated with years ago.
Adam Nawałka’s term as coach of the Polish national team is remembered with great nostalgia. During the term of the coach, born in 1957, the White and Reds achieved a great performance at EURO 2016 and also advanced to the World Championships in Russia. After them, the coach from Krakow left his position to take over at Lech Poznań.

Nawałka has been unemployed since March 2019. After poor results, the club from the capital of Greater Poland resigned from his services. From time to time, information about the possible employment of a coach by other clubs, and even by the Polish Football Association, leaked to the media. The coach was one of the candidates to replace Paulo Sousa. Ultimately, the federation’s choice fell on Czesław Michniewicz.
As reported by “Gazeta Krakowska”, Nawałka may return to the “coach”. Wisła Kraków, a club with which the former coach has strong ties, is showing interest. He spent most of his playing career there and also worked there as a coach. A few days ago, Biała Gwiazda said goodbye to Radosław Sobolewski and is looking for his successor.
The source emphasizes that while talks between both sides have already taken place, this is only a “very preliminary” discussion, without specific details. Nevertheless, Nawałka has great fondness for the Krakow club, and Wisła could count on an experienced coach in the fight for a return to the PKO Ekstraklasa.

According to media reports, one of the candidates for Wisła Kraków’s coach is Janusz Niedźwiedź, who until recently worked at Widzew Łódź.
After half the season, Biała Gwiazda is in eighth place in the 1st League, eight points behind the leader, Arka Gdynia, and one behind Motor Lublin, which is in sixth place, the last one giving the right to play in the play-offs.
