Milan Fukal (born 16 May 1975, in Jablonec nad Nisou) is a Czech footballer[1] playing for FC Hradec Králové.

The defender began his career with FK Jablonec. In 1999, he was bought by the Czech champion team Sparta Prague and called up by the Czech national team, for which he won 19 caps (two goals).

His participation in Euro 2000 gained the attention of the Bundesliga team Hamburger SV, who took him to Germany. Before the 2004–05 season, he moved to Borussia Mönchengladbach, staying with them until the start of the 2006–07 season. Following a trial week at Leeds United, and an interest in his services from Manchester City, he was ready to move to England. However, neither club followed up their interest and Fukal and Mönchengladbach agreed on a contract cancellation that allowed him to move back home to Jablonec nad Nisou and to sign a deal with his hometown side, FK Jablonec.

2008 Fukal changed to the Austrian first league club Kapfenberger SV. After 3 saisons Fukal moved in 2011 to FC Hradec Králové, where he played in the first Czech league for 2 years. Since 2013 Fukal plays once more in Austria for SV Esternberg.
