For a long time, fans and Wilfredo Leon himself hoped for the player’s performance during the World Cup. Finally, the working group headed by Nikola Grybich made the decision to abandon this idea.
The argument was that he wouldn’t know if and when Lyon was one hundred percent ready to play.
– I can’t say it was nice. I was a little angry that not everything happened as I had hoped – said the volleyball player in an interview with tvpsport.pl.

Leon admitted that he had a grudge against the staff. reason? – I was supposed to have more than a week to show my form, but I gave two days. However, I respect the coach’s choice – he said.
But most importantly, there is no conflict or misunderstanding between the parties. Leon met the full staff and the head of the PZPS, Sebastian Schwedersky.
– I said all I had inside. My main suggestion was that you should be careful with treating injured, returning actors. The attention and care of the staff could have been greater – Leon admitted and added that it’s not just about him.
Our star player also admitted he was sorry for all the confusion and misinformation. However, he leaves everything behind and looks to the future with optimism.
– After all, I respect the coach and others. I also think we all understood each other during the meeting. He concluded that the most important thing was that my heart was still alive for the staff and that I could be honest.
The Poles without Leon in the team reached the title of vice world champions, losing only in the final to Italy (1: 3). However, Grbi admitted after the tournament that he would have made the exact same decision on the matter.
