Plzeň – Football Plzeň will celebrate its 110th anniversary in Saturday’s league match with České Budějovice. The general director and owner of the club, Adolf Šádek, confirmed that Viktoria is currently looking for a new investor and his arrival should be completed by the end of the year. At the same time, the Pilsen boss stated that he did not plan to leave for Zbrojovka Brno and will remain in the West Bohemian team.
The arrival of a new owner in Pilsen has been speculated for a long time. In March, Šádek took over Victoria from Tomáš Paclík and is looking for an investor for her so that the West Bohemian team can continue to compete with the strongest Czech clubs.
“We saw this weekend that we are able to compete with them in terms of sports (Pilsen beat Sparta 3: 2 in the league). Precisely in order to be able to compete in other ways, negotiations are underway on the entry of a new investor. I’m not saying that we want to have the same budget as Slavia or Sparta, but in any case we want to be competitive, “Šádek told a press conference on the annual match.
“A modern and healthy club that educates players for their needs, but also for the national team. I can’t say more about this at the moment. Negotiations are ongoing, the process should be completed by the end of the calendar year,” added Šádek.
He does not plan to leave Pilsen for the second league Zbrojovka Brno, as the media speculated in the summer. “I am convinced that I will stay here. I just returned from Brno yesterday and the situation on the D1 motorway convinced me again that I would not drive there often,” he said with a smile.
“I feel like I was almost born for Viktorka. The successes we achieved here are never desired. We have a desire to win, as a club we are so set up. Whoever doesn’t understand it can’t play here. They have the same thing here. employees, including me, “said Šádek.
The people of Pilsen have won five league titles since the 2010/11 season, but have not advanced to the group stage of the European Cups in the last three seasons. “When I came years ago, he had big dreams and huge goals. And most of them came true, thanks to the enormous effort and diligence of all the people in the club. I wish the club was as successful as it was in the last decade. Yes, it will be huge difficult, but I would like him to continue writing history with his own hands, “said Šádek.
“It’s more like if I fulfill a dream, I want to relive it. But there’s still a lot that failed. Maybe we’ve never won a double, we haven’t won a league three times in a row. Some dreams are bold, but they were “Even though I came to Pilsen. I can still see the face of (former defender) David Limberský when I told him ten years ago that I would like to win the championship and play European cups,” added Šádek.
Before the season, the people of Pilsen did not declare their goal to attack the title. “We didn’t talk about the title exceptionally this year. We said we wanted to be in the top six so we could play for the European Cups. Yes, Saturday’s match with Sparta was great, but one swallow doesn’t do spring. As our boys are able to give fantastic performances, so in the same way, they can devalue it themselves in the next match, so I hope that they have mainly proved that if they approach every match like this, they are able to beat anyone, “said Šádek.
On the 110th anniversary of the club’s founding, Viktoria will compete against České Budějovice in special retro jerseys.
