Ryszard Komornicki (born 14 August 1959) is a Polish retired footballer who played mainly as a defensive midfielder and manager. He is currently the sporting director of GKS Tychy.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Ścinawa, Lower Silesia, Komornicki played for GKS Tychy and Górnik Zabrze in his country, winning four Ekstraklasa championships in a row with the latter club, then moved to Switzerland at the age of 30 where he represented FC Aarau, FC Wohlen and FC Kickers Luzern. He acted as player-coach to the last two teams, retiring at nearly 42. While at FC Aarau he was part of the side that won the Swiss national title in 1992–93.[1]

Komornicki won 20 caps for the Poland national side in slightly less than four years, and was a participant at the 1986 FIFA World Cup, appearing in all three group stage matches (one win, one loss and one draw). He made his debut on 31 October 1984, featuring 20 minutes in a 2–2 friendly draw against Albania in Mielec.

Managerial career[edit]

Komornicki took up coaching in 1998, going on to be in charge of a host of Swiss clubs for more than 15 years (including Aarau and Wohlen). Interspersed with this, he had two spells with Górnik and worked with El Gouna FC from the Egyptian Premier League in the 2011–12 season.

On 10 July 2019, Komornicki was hired as sporting director of GKS Tychy.[2]
