The Suwałki team has not won the game for nine games and is 13th in the table.
The club reported Monday at noon on its website that it rescinded the deal with Socha by agreement of the parties. A few hours later, he named the new coach.
Jakubowski played in the first league nearly 250 meetings. He defended the colors of clubs like ŁKS, Wisła Płock, Lech Poznań and Ruch Chorzów. He has been coaching for several years. His assistant in Wigry will be Donatas Venceviczius, who has been associated with Suwałki for years. He also served as coach of Wigry, but recently he worked in Lithuania.
Wigry had a good start to the season, despite many changes in the team. They even took fourth place in the table, but now they are in 13th place and divide the two points in the relegation zone. Suwałki's team achievements this season include four wins, seven draws and six defeats and a 1/32 win for the Polish Cup.
