Ondřej Čelůstka (born 18 June 1989;[1] pronounced [ˈondr̝ɛj ˈt͡ʃɛluːstka]) is a Czech football defender who plays for 1. FC Nürnberg. He is a member of the Czech Republic national team and represented the under-21 team at the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.

Club career[edit]

Slavia Prague[edit]

He began his career with FC Tescoma Zlín, making his professional debut in the Czech Gambrinus liga during the 2007–08 season, and then playing more regularly in the following one.[2] His good performances then ensured him a regular place with Czech leading club Slavia Prague, with whom he made fourteen appearances and a goal in the first half of the 2009–10 Gambrinus liga.[1]

Palermo (loan spell)[edit]

On 1 February 2010 he was signed on loan by Serie A outfit U.S. Città di Palermo, with an option for the Sicilians to sign the player permanently at the end of the season.[3] He was awarded the number #89 jersey from the rosanero.[4]

He played his first game in a rosanero jersey, as well as his first Serie A game, as a second-half substitute for Marco Calderoni in a 3–1 home win versus Bologna.[5]

On 8 July 2011, moved he to the Turkish club Trabzonspor for a transfer fee of €900,000[6] and signed a 5-year contract.[7][8] The club gave him the number 28 jersey.[9]

During a game against Inter Milan at the San Siro, Čelůstka scored the only goal of the game in a 1–0 away win for Trabzonspor in the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League.[10]


Čelůstka joined English Premier League club Sunderland on a season-long loan deal on 12 August 2013.[11]

He made his Premier League debut for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light five days later. Čelůstka hit a half volley from 30 yards which was saved by Maarten Stekelenburg as the team began the season with a 1–0 defeat to Fulham.[12]

Čelůstka was an unused substitute as Sunderland lost 3–1 to Manchester City in the the 2014 Football League Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on 2 March.[13]

1. FC Nürnberg[edit]

On 24 August 2014 Čelůstka joined 1. FC Nürnberg of the 2. Bundesliga on a free transfer after being released from Trabzonspor.[14]

International career[edit]

Čelůstka represented the Czech Republic at under 19 and under 20 level, before being capped 18 times for the under 21s. His performances at the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship saw him named in the Team of the Tournament. He made his debut for the Czech Republic full team on 15 November 2013 and scored after just three minutes in a 2–0 win against Canada.[15]
