I want to fight for trophies and I know it is possible for me to succeed here in Lech,” said Kostevych. “I try to play like a modern defender. I join the offensive often and I like to send the ball into the box. The team matters the most to me,” added the new player.

Lech’s vice-chairman is happy to have two equally competitive left defenders in his squad. “Our aim was to bring to Lech an offensive-minded left-back. We hope that Kostevych will meet our expectations. Thanks to this transfer every position on the field is well-casted. In addition, two new young footballers joined the team, Puchacz and Tomczyk.

The squad is well-casted and we have good rivalry on every position. Only players who leave can open room for bringing new ones. The transfer window is short and dynamic, but it hasn’t yet ended. We are ready for whatever is to come,” said Rutkowski.
