A column by Dariusz Dziekanowski: a luxury problem with Krzysztof Piątek

Last week, all of Poland's football went through the transfer of Krzysztof Piątek from Genoa to the famous Milan. Probably a few days after the former Krakow striker signed the contract. Many fans do not get this message: a Milan club where players like Marco van Basten, Andriy Shevchenko or Filippo Inzaghi played once, want to rebuild their splendor and one of the foundations of the new power of Rossonerów is to be a 23-year-old Polish . EUR 35 million. I wake up in the morning and even drink a strong expresso, I still do not trust.

At the Milan meeting in Milan with Napoli, we had just a preview of what awaits the Polish representative in Milan. And also hope that the anticipation of what Friday will show on the shirt in red and black stripes. Gennaro Gattuso left Piątek after 70 minutes. It is such a safe time for the player – if he does not blink, it is difficult to have a grudge because he had very little time, but if he tilts the balance of the meeting he will be carried in his hands. He did not score on Friday, but for 20 minutes he showed up on the good side. He worked on one occasion, he did not take advantage of this, but he fed much fear to his rivals, including team mates: Piotr Zieliński and Arkadiusz Milik.

During those 20 minutes he showed that he is resistant even at the greatest pressure. This is something that characterizes the class attackers – whether I play in Krakow against Legia, Genoa against Juventus, or Milan in Napoli – I do not care. In fact, the more pressure, the better. So far, we have not had many opportunities to figure this out. In Milan, Friday has the chance to transform from a meteor to a large format star.

The great thing is that he does not think much about his game, he does not calculate, he is simply direct. And speaking in a straightforward way (not to be confused with a prostitute!), I mean he chooses the simplest solutions, the shortest path to the goal. And he has an extraordinary rope in that goal. This reminds me of England's representative of Harry Kane, with the Tottenham player having to show that he is more experienced and still more technically advanced.

The transition to Milan is for Krzysztof Piątek a great opportunity to enter the next level and gain a completely different status in European football. So far we have been looking at his performances in Genoa and wondered how he would react when the crisis hit him, when in two or three consecutive meetings he would not score. Somewhere deep in our heads, we feared that at that weakest moment he would go to the reserve bench and not get up for long. Because it often happens with young Polish footballers who are taking a big step in their careers. The crisis was circumvented, which resulted in this rather surprising transfer.

Among the fans one can feel the euphoria associated with the fact that we now have in the representation of three strikers from such class clubs. If we compare the market values ​​of Lewandowski, Milika and Piątek with each other, then the nine-digit sum will be released. In this euphoria, some people talk and write about the most dangerous attack in the world. Unfortunately, the pitch is not a math, not always 2 + 2 + 2 will equal 6.

I am skeptical about the issues and ideas being cast from time to time to the white and red selector Jerzy Brzęcz. First of all, because the three of our attackers are very similar – each of them is a typical "9", ie a player who lives in the passages of others, the one that is in the penalty area. In fact, Milik played with Lewandowski in the role of an assailant in retreat, Adam Nawałka also placed him in the left wing, but this is not his natural environment. Neither of our attackers is as hesitant as Griezmann, nor do we have weapons as fast as Mbappe or Aubameyang. We have three typical "bombers" for this. Maybe it's a matter of finding a prescription, but in the history of the ball there were many examples of pairs of big players that just bothered. For many years, the British had a big problem in the midst of the aid, when the selectors tried to put Lampard and Gerrard side by side. Previously, there was a conflict in the German representation between Netzer and Overath.

The most universal of the three Poles is Lewandowski, but anywhere else in the "9", Robert will be losing much of his potential. In games with serious rivals, I doubt the selector will risk this solution. Even if he finds a place for two, what to do with the third? This may be a problem, but only if we try to find a place on the team for each of them. When we look at it a little differently – in other words, in the case of the weaker form of one puts on two others – then it is luxury. And let's stick to it!
