Poland’s head coach Czeslaw Michniewicz thanked Jose Mourinho for gifting their national team Nicola Zalewski who emerged in last season’s campaign with Roma and soon became an important player for Michniewicz’s squad.

Leading up to their knockout round with France, Michniewicz remarked, “I met with Mourinho and we’ve remained in touch ever since.”

“I want to thank him for Zalewski’s form,” he added during his morning presser in Doha. “We heavily rely on the clubs’ preparation of their players, and so I appreciate the work done by all managers. There’s been a great deal of collaboration with all clubs involved.”

“Fabio Cannavaro told me that he misses Glik but also that he wishes him to stay in Qatar as long as possible. I also have to thank Allegri, Spalletti, Mourinho, Stankovic, Nicola, Italiano and many others.”
