CIESLAK RETAINS POLISH JOB FOR 2020

Polish team manager Marek Cieslak has extended his storied career as national boss for the 2020 season.

18 / 11 / 2019, 13:00

Polish team manager Marek Cieslak has extended his storied career as national boss for the 2020 season.

The Czestochowa boss won a sensational seven FIM Speedway World Cups in 11 seasons with his country between 2007 and 2017, playing a key role in establishing the Poles as the sport’s most dominant force.

He has never been afraid to make huge selection decisions, famously ending Tomasz Gollob’s international career to usher in Poland’s next generation.

With rumours circulating in the Polish media that 2020 may be his last season in charge, Cieslak will be determined to win the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations title for the first time.

He led the Poles to third place at the inaugural tournament in Wroclaw last year, before Bartosz Zmarzlik and Patryk Dudek raced to the top of the scorechart at this year’s Finals in Togliatti, only to lose out on gold to hosts Russia in the Grand Final, leaving Poland to settle for silver.

Cieslak has also enjoyed a successful club managerial career, having won the Polish league title four times.

He will fancy his chances of making it five in 2020 as hometown team Czestochowa go into the season, spearheaded by world No.2 Leon Madsen, Freddie Lindgren and new signing Jason Doyle.
