28-year-old goalkeeper Mickey van der Hart and 34-year-old midfielder Pedro Tiba will no longer play for blue and white in the new 2022/2023 season. Lech Poznań has decided not to renew the expired contract on June 30, 2022.
Pedro Tiba has played for Lech Poznań since the summer of 2018. In the 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 seasons, he was Kolejorz’s main central midfielder, who was the team’s strength. The 2021/2022 season for the Portuguese was already weaker. The right-footed player played less and less than the matches, lost the competition in the middle of the field, appeared less often even when he entered the field from the substitute bench, and scored one goal and one assistance.
Lech Poznań was allowed to automatically extend Pedro Tiba’s contract, which expired on June 30, 2022, for another season, but he decided not to do so. He agreed that the 34-year-old would not give Lech Poznań again, and the team needed reinforcements in the position of a central midfielder.
In turn, Mickey van der Hart made in Kolejorz from the summer of 2019. During three seasons he could not stabilize his form, in July 2020 he suffered a serious shoulder injury, treating the injury for several months. In the fall of 2021 he got another injury, this time a muscular one, that he healed only in winter.
Recently, the Dutchman brought to Poland thanks to Tomasz Rząsa being the main goalkeeper, but after his spring performance found that the team needed a better person as a goalkeeper. Both Pedro Tiba and Mickey van der Hart, who won the Polish title in 2022, have achieved the greatest successes of their careers.
Pedro Tiba played a total of 141 official matches in Lech Poznań for 4 years, while Mickey van der Hart played 71 matches for 3 years. The lack of contract extensions for these players despite winning the Polish championship shows Kolejorz’s sporting ambitions and the training staff who are looking for even better players.
Mickey van der Hart and Pedro Tiba heard the final decision not to renew their contracts today. Both will officially say goodbye to Saturday, May 21 during the match between Lech Poznań and Zagłębie Lubin.
