He also made a bow towards Nikola Grbic. He emphasized how important his decisions were and that they largely led the team to the top step of the podium. “He is a coach who holds the entire team very tightly. This is not a job where you can sit down and say: ‘Okay, they will play on their own.’ No, there is constant pressure from him and he constantly tells us what he is working on. we still have to work, he points out our shortcomings. I we have the effect of medals“- he explained.

He immodestly did not mention his significant contribution. A teammate did it, Łukasz Kaczmarek.

Thus, Kaczmarek recalled his friend’s fight to regain full strength. Last year Leon had to undergo knee surgery. Later, he implemented rehabilitation, which brought results, but Nikola Grbic still decided not to call him up for the World Cup. The player did not hide his bitterness, but he finally came to terms with this turn of events.

Now he performed fantastically in the European Championship final. It would be difficult to imagine the team without him in the lineup. The fans looked with even greater horror at the moment when he asked for a substitution and sat on the bench. There were concerns about next health problems. Fortunately, the injury turned out to be minor and the volleyball player quickly returned to play.

Łukasz Kaczmarek somehow confirms that Leon faced some inconvenience during the match. In the entry he describes that Wilfredo “He fought in the final very heartily despite the pain” And he ends on a very positive note. He gives a touching thank you to his friend.

“It’s a great pleasure to share the pitch with you. You are an outstanding volleyball player (the best in the history of this sport), and an even better personyou can always count on. Thank you,” he concluded.
