Matúš Kozáčik (born 27 December 1983) is a Slovak football goalkeeper who currently plays for Czech club Viktoria Plzeň.

Career[edit]

While Kozáčik was playing for SK Slavia Prague, Leeds United took him on trial in December 2006.[1]

Anorthosis Famagusta[edit]

2010-2011[edit]

In June 2010 he agreed a two year contract with the Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta until the summer of 2012. He took the Number 1 shirt from the previous Anorthosis goalkeeper Arjan Beqaj. Kozáčik made his debut for Anorthosis Famagusta in the First qualifying round of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League against Banants. He kept two clean sheets.

Kozáčik lost his place into the starting eleven to the second goalkeeper of the team Marcos Argüello a 0-2 loss against HNK Šibenik at Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium. After the January transfer period Argüello moved to Club Bolivar and Kozáčik returned to the starting line-up for the rest of the season.

2011-2012[edit]

Kozáčik started as first-choice goalkeeper for the club's European matches. Then, Kozáčik lost his position to other club goalkeeper Dimitar Ivankov for the next two matches. After two matches Ivankov left the club and from this point Kozáčik continued as first-choice goalkeeper.[2]
