Career[edit]

He began his career at FK Havířov and in 1994 moved to FK Viktoria Žižkov where he accumulated only one league start. He played in the first round of the 1994–95 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup against Chelsea, conceding four goals in the first leg in London.[3] The year after, he signed with FC Zlín and in November 1997 transferred to Tatran Prešov in Slovakia. Two years later he moved to Belgium, to K.S.C. Lokeren OV, where he was recruited by R.S.C. Anderlecht scouts in 2002. Since his arrival at Anderlecht, he has been in competition with Tristan Peersman, Zvonko Milojević, Željko Pavlović, Jan Van Steenberghe and Silvio Proto, but he remained a first-team regular.
