Russian clubs also see in their composition another wing-spiker of Skra Belchatow – Michal Winiarski. “He is known as a perfect defender, but also like great spiker and some people says that he is the most comprehensive in the world. Hence, Michal got few offers from Russia. Will he stay in Skra? I do not know. We have to wait several weeks and everything will be explained”- Ryszard Bosek Winiarski’s manager said.
