Poland's football association elected former star Zbigniew Boniek as its new president on Friday.
The former Juventus forward succeeds Grzegorz Lato, amid calls to reform an association that has been blamed for poor national team performances, corruption in the domestic game and a failure to deal with stadium hooligans.
Boniek, a national team great during the 1980s, won 61 votes from the 118 delegates at an association convention. He was one of five candidates. Lato, another former star, was not seeking a second term. He was criticized when a World Cup qualifier against England in Warsaw had to be postponed because of rain earlier this month - despite the stadium being equipped with a roof.
