The president of the Polish federation believes that players need to play for club teams in order to play in the national team.

The current head of the Polish Football Association believes Arkadiusz Milik will not be able to play in Euro 2020 if he does not play for Napoli.

Since Arkadiusz Milik rejected the offer to sign a new contract, he has been completely removed from the main squad. Although he is in the starting line-up for tomorrow's game against Italy, his position is highly uncertain.

"If he doesn't play at club level, it's practically impossible for him to be used at Euro 2020," Boniek told Libero newspaper.

"When he's in good shape, Milik can make the difference in any team. I don't know why he isn't playing at Napoli, that's an issue between him and (Napoli President Aurelio) De Laurentiis. I don't want to get into it."

As head of the Polish Football Association, Boniek strongly opposes the suspension of tournaments due to Covid 19

"I don't understand all these complaints from the directors. Federations have to exist and national teams have to play, end of story. With a protocol that everyone sticks to, we can continue playing.

"Clubs are being egotistical and I don't understand why club teams ought to play, but not national sides."
