Michał Probierz (born 24 September 1972) is a Polish retired footballer and current coach for Ekstraklasa side KS Cracovia. He won the Polish Cup and Polish Super Cup with Jagiellonia Białystok.

Managerial career[edit]

After brief stints at hometown club Polonia Bytom and also Widzew Lodz, Probierz was appointed manager of Ekstraklasa side Jagiellonia Białystok in 2008.

He led them to the 2009–10 Polish cup final, only the second final appearance in their history. They won the final, their first major Polish trophy, beating Pogoń Szczecin 1–0 at the Zdzisław Krzyszkowiak Stadium. In doing so they qualified for European competition for the first time, entering the 2010–11 Europa League third qualifying round.

In the 2010–11 season, Probierz led Jagiellonia to the Polish Super Cup (beating Lech Poznan 1–0). They lost in the Europa League third qualifying round to Greek side Aris Salonki, losing 4–3 on aggregate. At the end of the season he left the club to take over at ŁKS Łódź.

His reign at Łódź lasted just 60 days and 6 matches before he joined the team he lost to in the Europa League with Jagiellonia, Aris Salonki.[1] Again, he lasted a very short time there (63 days and 9 matches) before he was sacked.

In March 2012 he was back in Poland, agreeing to become manager of defending champions Wisła Kraków, replacing Kazimierz Moskal. He resigned on October 2012 with Wisła near the bottom of the table.

He joined struggling GKS Bełchatów, who were bottom of the Ekstraklasa, in November 2012. He only managed 4 games for them, failing to win any of them as they were eventually relegated., having had three different managers throughout the season.

Probierz agreed to managed Lechia Gdańsk ahead of the 2013–14 season. He stayed until March 2014, where he left the team before they secured a place in the Championship round of games and finished 4th, narrowly missing out on a European place.

Return to Jagiellonia[edit]

A couple of weeks later after leaving Lechia, Probierz returned to former club Jagiellonia. In his first full season back in charge, he secured 3rd position and qualification for the 2015–16 Europa League first qualifying round. After a poor 2015–16 season, with Jagiellonia ending up in the Relegation round, Probierz led the club to their best ever Ekstraklasa season in the 2016–17 season, finishing second behind champions Legia Warsaw.

In June 2017, Probierz unexpectdly left Jagiellonia to join struggling Ekstraklasa side KS Cracovi.[2] He led them to 10th in 2017–18 but still in the relegation round. Cracovi comfortably topped the group, easily avoiding relegation to I liga.
