ABOUT

Grzegorz Bolesław Lato (born 8 April 1950 in Malbork) is a retired Polish footballer and manager who played as a winger. He was the leading scorer at the 1974 World Cup. Lato's playing career coincided with the golden era of Polish football, which began with Olympic gold in Munich in 1972 and ended a decade later with third place at the 1982 World Cup in Spain, a repeat of the Poles' impressive finish in 1974 in Germany. He is the only Polish player ever to win the Golden boot at a World Cup. From 2001 to 2005 Lato, as a member of Democratic Left Alliance, was a senator in Poland. On 30 October 2008, he was elected president of Polish Football Association (PZPN), serving for nearly four years before being succeeded by Zbigniew Boniek on 26 October 2012.
