Waldemar Fornalik (born 11 April 1963 in Myślenice) is a former Polish footballer who played his entire career for Ruch Chorzów. From July 2012 to October 2013, he was the coach of the Poland national football team.
Following the end of his playing career, Fornalik began a managing career. He was manager in Górnik Zabrze and Odra Wodzisław. He won the bronze medal (3rd place) with Ruch Chorzów in the 2009–10 Ekstraklasa season. In the 2011–12 season he led Ruch Chorzow to second place, the highest placement since winning the title in 1989.
In July 2012, Fornalik became the coach of the Poland national football team after the dismissal of Franciszek Smuda. On 16 October 2013, after a 0–1 loss to Ukraine in Kharkiv, which confirmed that Poland would not be going to the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, and a 0–2 loss to England at Wembley Stadium the previous night, PZPN sacked Fornalik due to not fulfilling his contract objectives.
