ZAKSA S.A. informs that Bartosz Bednorz will join the Azoty Group ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Kozle for the 2022/2023 season. The 28-year-old outside spiker returns to PlusLiga after a five-year break, during which he left PGE Skra Belchatow and moved to Modena in Italy. After two seasons playing in the Italian Serie A, Bednorz defended the colors of Zenit Kazan, where he played until the end of the 2021/2022 season. The Azoty Group ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle will be the second club of the Polish representative in this season. Our new receiver already has a successful season in the Chinese league, where he won the vice-championship of the country with Shanghai Golden Age on January 5th.
I am returning after five years and I am excited to be able to play on the PlusLiga courts again. I am very happy to have joined the ZAKSA family,” said the new receiver of the Azoty Group ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The 28-year-old also added that he wants to fight for successes comparable to those of the last golden years in the club’s history with ZAKSA. “I always set the highest goals for myself, so the expectations are also high. I am aware that ZAKSA is a club that has a lot to prove every year. In recent years, the guys have done a great job, leaving their hearts on the field and earning the respect of this club,” he said. “We have a difficult task ahead of us, but I believe that I will quickly acclimatize and together we will fight to defend the titles
As Tuomas Sammelvuo, the Polish representative, emphasized, Bednorz will undoubtedly strengthen our team.
We acquired Bartosz to strengthen the team. He comes to us from a league that is not as strong as the PlusLiga, so I think he will need some time to adapt to the new conditions. He is healthy, motivated, and as everyone knows, he is a very good player. Now it is important to gradually introduce him to the team. I believe that our players will welcome him warmly into the team. We are aware that Bartosz needs some time to adapt but I am confident that he will quickly become an important player for our team, said Tuomas Sammelvuo.
