In this situation, Paweł Juchniewicz, the coach of Legia, is a player, who may have been with AZS in the capital for a long time as a player. With a training trainer Patryk Serwański from the RMF FM editorial office.
Patryk Serwański, RMF FM It may seem straightforward, but in the futsal Ekstraklasa he never plays the Warsaw derbies. The first such and therefore historic match is ahead of us.
Paweł Juchniewicz: As you know perfectly well, the history of the capital futsal in the current situation only AZS Uniwersytet Warszawski. Legia as a new creation does not exist for long. We were quickly promoted to Ekstraklasa, but in fact we did, there was no league derby in Warsaw. What we have before during the first meeting with AZS, during the match in the Polish Cup match or various tournaments played in the capital, the league will be like a match. I hope that with this duel we will initiate the hope that the future capital derby will be won.
In the case of those specific for derby, Legia is their younger student respectively.
We take about our current situation, so far there is nothing to compare. When it comes to social and football potential, we can fight AZS as much as possible. Of course with the course of the course to the competition. We will leave history aside and we will fight for three points.
Will it be a special match for you? I perfectly remember that when I was playing for AZS UW. Now another function in another club in Warsaw. Sentiments are definitely getting better …
Definitely. It is true that this game of mine is to fade away, because the time has passed. But the sentiment remained, because it lasted all my own – not counting the completion of the episode – I was present with AZSE. You can already feel the atmosphere of anticipation in the team, so not only for me it will be a match.
Special matches also for players. After all, Mariusz Milewski plays in Legia – in the future with AZS in the future, and it is safe to say that there was a star there from years ago. The list of those who play for Legia, but also put on the AZS jersey, is longer.
This group is quite large. There is also Adam Grzyb, Krzysiek Jarosz, Duarte Araujo, Juan Casillas, Tomek Warszawski, Grzegorz Och – all of them have performed in AZS. It will be special for all ten matches. Remember – a derby is always a derby. He is waiting for such matches. I am glad that at the beginning we have such a source in Warsaw, this was the current information in Silesia.
You have been with the capital’s futsal for years. How did she influence Legia’s first person as a brand that attracted fans?
Very positive. When we chose Legia first, we played in the league. The signals we received from the Masovian Football Association showed that it was not consistent whether such a league would be made available. Now the league is not that it is playing, we still have enough games in Poland. In the capital, each season is also getting bigger and bigger at this level the level is growing. Legia is also a brand and attracts fans of a large group of people who come from various sources. I’m glad it looks like this, but I wish I hadn’t until now. When I was still a player, we tried to do stalks, try-ons for this Legia. We wanted to get interested in this futsal. There was no response. Now it worked. Better late than a year. It’s nice that this Legia. I can enjoy it as a coach, but you can play the satisfaction that comes with being able to play games.
After 13 rounds of STATSCORE Futsal Ekstraklasa, both the capital city’s behavior – Legia Warszawa and AZS UW DARKOMP Wilanów – have 17 points on their account each. They occupy places in the middle of the pack. Thanks to a better balance sheet AZS UW is 8th and Legia 9th. Piast Gliwice is the leader of the tournament.
