Football idol

I would never say one single name of a player I admired since I started playing football. If I think of right defenders, I always liked a certain footballer who was in great form. As regards the last five years I enjoyed watching the career of Maicon (AS Roma and Brazil) who used to play so superbly fo Inter Milan, Lukasz Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund) and most recently Branislav  Ivanović who plays regularly for Chelsea led by Mourinho. 

If I should look at all the field players, I have always admired Pavel Nedvěd for his strong will and hard-working attitude that was shown during all his career.

Hobbies, spare time activites

There is not much free time during the season and there is no energy to be wasted, so I like to have a proper rest and enough sleep. Just joking - I like all the sports - tennis, biking, ice-hockey in winter or skiing. I think I am quite good at all these sports, it is because of my parents who were supporting my sporting activities since early childhood. These days it is a great relaxing time when I can get sweat in some other way than when playing football.

Favourite music

I like POP and ROCK music styles. Also a lot of dance music, though I do not dance very often. When I do, nobody should be watching.

Favourite films

The ones in which Tom Hanks is starring - Save Private Ryan, Cast Away, The Terminal...

Favourite meal

It is hard to choose one. I like Italian cuisine, but I also enjoyed a lot of Turkish meals. But I also like Czech trradional dishes, from time to time I have our "svičková" - sirloin with sauce and dumplings.

Favourite place

Southern Moravia

Dream vacation

Every one after a long and succesful season.
