A mural dedicated to the greatest coach in the history of Polish football, Kazimierz Górski, has been unveiled in a block at 49/51 Madalińskiego Street in Warsaw. The trainer lived here with his family until 2006.

The block at 49/51 Madalińskiego Street in the capital has been decorated since November 9 with a mural dedicated to the greatest coach in the history of Polish football, Kazimierz Górski. The trainer lived there with his family in the years 1973-2006.

To create a 240-square-meter mural, the artistic duo Marta Piróg and Marek Grela, known as Czary-Mury, needed over 40 liters of paint and 1,060 ceramic elements.

The mural, consisting of two parts, shows a ball made of ceramic tiles and a 9-meter tall figure of Górski in a typical coaching pose with his right leg resting on the ball.

The front of the building has been decorated for several years with a commemorative plaque saying: “In the years 1973-2006 lived in this house a legendary coach, creator of a unique representation in the history of Polish football, a humble man Kazimierz Górski”. STS is the patron of the project.

On October 6 Górski became the patron of the National Stadium. On the same day, a special plaque dedicated to the outstanding coach, whose statue has been standing in front of the stadium since 2009, was unveiled at the facility.

Polish champion, Greek champion, medalist of the World Cup and the Olympic Games

Kazimierz Górski, born one hundred years ago in Lviv, began his football adventure in this city. In 1952, after completing a coaching course in Krakow, he started training. He became the coach of the first Polish national team in 1971, and a year later his pupils achieved their first great success, winning the silver Olympic medal in Munich. In 1974, they made a sensation at the World Cup in West Germany and finished it in third place. In 1976 – also under the leadership of Górski – they became runners-up in the Montreal Olympics.

In his club career, he won the title of the national champion with Legia Warszawa, Panathinaikos Athens and three times with Olympiacos Piraeus.

In the plebiscite of the weekly “Soccer Nożna”, he was recognized as the best coach of the 20th century, and in 2021 “Przegląd Sportowy” awarded him the title of the coach of the century.

This is another mural of football fame in Warsaw – on September 1, 2020, a mural was unveiled on one of the skyscrapers in Warsaw’s Ursynów, dedicated to the excellent footballer of the Capital City of Legia, Kazimierz Deyna, a legend of Polish football, winner of gold and silver Olympic medals, bronze medalist of the World Cup in 1974.
