2017-10-20 10:12:00
Thursday morning on Traugutta 29 started unusual for Lechia players. It was because of the visit of two UFC fighters, who came to the city or Saturday Gala in Ergo Arena, Gdańsk.

First Mike Perry and Aljamain Sterling together with Piotr Wiśniewski and Jakub Arak were working on their football skills. After that they transformed into MMA teachers showing the basic elements of the fight, such as blowing out the punches and avoiding the impact of the opponent. 

- I'm interested in football. It's cool. My parents have played football for many years, so I have it in my blood. I even think that I'm related to Raheem (Raheem Sterling - Manchester City midfielder). Many people have told me that, so it may be true - said Aljamain Sterling. - Lechia Gdańsk is my new favorite club. Thank you for such a warm welcome and great gifts! - added Mike Perry, who, like Sterling, received from the club a white and green jersey with his own name.

 Our coach Adam Owen joined Piotr Wiśniewski and Jakub Araka to welcome in Gdansk both fighters and to wish them a great stay in our city.
