How are you enjoying life at Sunderland?
It’s been amazing so far, everyone’s great!

How long have you been playing football?
Ever since I was little, I was always playing back home in the Czech Republic.

Have you played for any other teams?
Yes I’ve played for FC Tescoma Zlin, Slavia Prague, Palermo and Trabzonspor.

Can you speak any other languages other than English and Czech?
I can speak a little bit of Italian, which will be good for chatting to my new friends Emanuele Giaccherini and Vito Mannone!

What is the best game you’ve ever played?
When I was playing for Trabzonspor we had a game against Inter Milan, we were going to draw 0-0 and then I scored the winning goal!

What is your favourite thing about playing football?
The atmosphere when you run out on the pitch is incredible and of course scoring goals.

Do you hope to play for your country at senior level one day?
There’s nothing I’d like more, it’s been a dream since I was little!

What is your favorite food?
Being a footballer you have to eat a balanced diet so I eat lots of pasta and vegetables. 

What do you think of England?
I love it here, everyone is really friendly and the fans are so passionate.
