Sparta signed Dávid Hancko
Sparta gained seventh new player during the summer! Defender Dávid Hancko comes from the Italian Fiorentina. Twenty-one-year-old Slovakian can play as a centre-back, but he also took the position of the left-back in Italy. This position belongs to him also in the Slovak national team.
Dávid Hancko went to Fiorentina last summer from Žilina, where he had grown up and then started as a centre-back. He played for MŠK regularly in the 2017/2018 season and scored four goals in twenty-nine matches. Many clubs including Sparta wanted to gain him. However he moved to Fiorentina as the most expensive defender in the history of the Slovak league.
He played five matches during the first season in Serie, including whole match against Juventus in April. During the summer Italian team told him that he is not in plans for next season.
“Dávid is a young constructive defender with excellent parameters for current football. We liked him a lot while he was in Žilina. It can play as a centre or left back. This will increase the concurrence in both of these positions,” says ACS Sports Director Tomáš Rosický to the new player.
