Lech wants a potential new coach to team up with the old coaching staff, which is hard to accept for some candidates. Some coaches, during conversations with Lech, indicated that there are high risks involved in taking on the team That was shortly before the UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds. They expressed their willingness to take on the champion of Ekstraklasa, but at some time, for example in August.
