Holzer joins Sparta
Another new signing! 20-years old midfielder Daniel Holzer has completed his move from second division side Baník Ostrava and signed a 4-year deal at Letná.
Sparta have used the release clause in the player’s contract with FCB.
Offensive player had played his fourth season for Baník last year, playing 69 matches and scoring 5 goals. Ostrava native has also represented the Czech Republic in youth categories, and currently is a U21 national team player, led by former Sparta manager, Vítězslav Lavička.
In the previous season, Holzer played in 27 league matches, became the team captain, but his team was relegated after a bad first part of the season.
After finishing all the transfer paperwork at the Czech FA, Holzer will be allowed to play in the upcoming league opener vs. Slovácko on Saturday. However, it is now too late to add him to the Champions League squad and Holzer will not play in the 2nd leg of the Champions League 3rd qualifying round in Bucharest.
“Despite his age, Daniel is a very experienced player. After becoming a captain last season, he’s now accepting a challenge and wants to do his best for Sparta. We wish him good luck,” said the players’ agent Viktor Kolář from the SPORT INVEST International agency.
