Spezia football chief Macia: Never planned to lose Kiwior to Arsenal


Spezia football chief Eduardo Macia says there was never a plan to sell Jakub Kiwior in January.

The young Poland defender left Spezia last month for Arsenal.

Macia said, "I can say with honesty that on Kiwior the intention was to retain the boy. But then there was the opportunity for prestige for the boy, as well as for the club, to be evaluated. The footballer has never asked to leave, he has always shown the utmost professionalism and the Ownership has always left us great autonomy, as in all other decisions, never pushing, not even for a second, for enhancement: they left us maximum freedom of action.

"There was no economic necessity to divest Kiwior. We have a very solid Ownership behind us, we often repeat, the Platek family is our guarantee in times of need. With Kiwior or without Kiwior the incoming transactions would have come anyway and this is proven by the purchases made even before Arsenal's request came.

"The roster has been improved in every department, in attack, in midfield, as well as in defense, where we have so many possible solutions."
