Wellington Phoenix signed Michal Kopczyński on a season long loan from current Polish Champions, Legia Warsaw in July 2018.

Kopczyński said talking to the Head Coach was the deciding factor to come to Wellington.
"I wanted to experience something new in playing abroad and talking about the project with Mark helped me to decide to come to Wellington.
"He’s clear about what he wants in his players and what he needs from me.
"I have heard about Filip (Kurto) signing so it will be good for me to help settle in."
