ONICO Warszawa remained without one of their key players for the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinals!


Due to a back injury, Bartosz Kurek finished the season! It means that a famous opposite hitter will not be able to help his teammates in the Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff semifinals against Jastrzębski Węgiel which starts today.

Kurek has been struggling with the pain for a while. The medical tests have shown that it requires urgent treatment to prevent the injury from deepening which would cause risk to the athlete’s health.

As some media in Poland reported, ONICO are close to signing the best scorer of the national league Maciej Muzaj from Trefl Gdańsk (still has a valid contract with the club) as Kurek’s replacement. The PlusLiga rules allow special kinds of transfers outside the transfer window which is called the medical joker.

Bartosz Kurek had a surgery today. All went well but he won't be able to play for several months. Miss him already.. Get well soon, Bartosz!

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
