Poland coach Paulo Sousa had words of praise for striker Robert Lewandoski who he termed as a player who was “majorly important” for the team’s success. Sousa hailed the attacker as a footballer who always wants to perform, highlighting his achievements till this stage. The Poland coach further urged Lewandoski to ensure discipline, ambition and push himself to the maximum at every stage. It will be interesting to note the performances of the star attacker.
“He’s majorly important as the quality he has raises our level and you can see a country relying on him. He is always a very sensible boy, he always wants to perform. You can see all what he has achieved so far. He needs to have discipline, ambition, he always needs to push himself to the maximum,” he said in an interaction with UEFA’s official website.
“We are working on heading in that direction where we can have a team that is balanced, organised, aggressive with players who at certain moments of the game, spend two or three times more energy to get up and support him, where in the key moments he needs to make a difference. He knows how to make the difference and he will make the difference,” added Sousa.
The Poland coach further stated that he was looking ahead to his first major tournament as a coach, with a lot of positivity.
“I always look at things really positively. I believe in everything we do with lots of conviction: what we need to pass, on a daily basis, on to our players. I feel the players are receptive to everything that we show them. We have a long way to becoming really, really strong. We have quality, but we need to be much more organised and more aggressive, with more ambition in our game,” he said.
“And we’ve already made steps on this. In our games, we’ve made them. Unfortunately, we didn’t achieve the maximum points that the team worked towards during the game, because we deserved much more. But it made us more and more focused to achieve that. For that, I’m really positive about starting this tournament well,” added Sousa.
