This season, Legia Warsaw scores an average of two goals per game. He plays bold and risky football. Considering the individual quality of the players, it can be said that Legia achieved a result that exceeded its capabilities, significantly.
Let’s not kid ourselves, there are not a lot of creative players in this team, there are no crazy dribblers who make the difference in one-on-one play, and there are no players who create the game from the back. Legia play simple, physical football, but Kosta Rungaic made the team play absolutely amazing football, in our circumstances.
Ronald Ring, the famous German journalist, tells us: “Costa managed to change the style of the team quickly, whether in Darmstadt, Duisburg, Kaiserslautern or Bugon. Everywhere he made teams start playing bolder, louder and faster. Wherever he went the teams played better football.” Much more dangerous.
There’s something about him that people trust. First of all, because of the knowledge, but also because of the ability to communicate with the team. Players understand that he can improve them. “He also has very great training sessions, people just like him, works a lot with the ball, and organizes very exciting matches.”
You can actually see it in the game. His players are not afraid to get into duels (well, at European level they are average). Contrary to the “team build from behind” principle, Costa inspired the players and made them try. This is the beginning of success. If you have the courage and permission, you will come up with better and better ideas over time.
After the crazy matches against Austria Vienna (5:3) and Midtjylland (3:3) there were a lot of complaints about the defensive play. On the other hand, let’s look at the stats. The goal tally is really insane, 15:13. But also… Legia averaged 11.8 shots per game in qualifying matches, including 6.5 shots on target. Competitors running 7.7, including 4.7 on target.
But isn’t that what games are for? Isn’t that why fans pay for tickets to watch shots, moves and goals, not tactical chess?
Needless to say, this is a fun team to watch. It would be good if the club management followed suit and gave the team more individual quality. Because there are still huge reserves here.
