Early career[edit]

Švejdík went to school in Opava, where he began his football life as a junior player.[1] Between 1998 and 2001, Švejdík represented the Czech Republic at youth international level, playing for teams up to the under-18 level.[2] He played at the 2001 UEFA European Under-18 Football Championship.[3] During this time he played club football in the Gambrinus liga for SFC Opava.

At Groningen, Švejdík suffered a couple of injuries including breaking his arm in 2007[7] and undergoing surgery for a knee problem in 2009.[8]
