Last time we informed about another injury of Sebastian Swiderski. Therefore Zaksa found a new player, Jiri Popelka.
Actually, Jiri Popelka has his experience with both Polish League and Zaksa Kedzierzyn. He was a part of this team in 2003/2004 season and he was a spiker. The president of Zaksa, Kazimierz Pietrzyk, said a few nice words about his new player. “In 2003 we didn’t go very far, but Popelka was playing quite well. There were games in which he scored even 30 points.”
Now, Jiri Popelka is going to play as a receiver. He is 34 years old and 204 cm high. After he left Poland he gained more experience in Russia, Turkey, France, Italy and Germany. Jiri Popelka also plays in the national team of Czech Republic
“Last time he spent in Dubai, but something went wrong and he canceled his contract. We were negotiating with some other players, but finally we made a deal with Jiri” – Kazimierz Pietrzyk said.
