Pogon Chairman Assures Fans Winter Break Was Success
Pogon Szczecin chairman Jaroslaw Mroczek has spoken out on social media today assuring fans of the struggling Ekstraklasa club that the seemingly dismal winter break was in fact a success.
Mroczek based his claims on the huge financial benefit, with the club earning up to £250,000 in appearance fees. Pogon travelled to Germany and the Czech Republic during their tour whilst also visiting smaller clubs in Poland. Mr Mroczek says the German tour was especially beneficial with over two thirds of the money coming from the tour.
Although fans have been disappointed with the results, Mroczek has told fans that this bad run of form will contribute to some good run of form later on, as he has promised that some of the money will go towards some new players for the club. Although Pogon were not in a bad way financially before the break, they will be feeling safer with some extra money in the pocket.
Pogon are now looking beyond the break, with just 4 matches remaining in the season. For all the money that can earn, Pogon still need to prove their worth on the pitch and survive the season unscathed.
