Marek Suchý (born 29 March 1988) is a Czech football player who plays as a defender for Czech Republic national football team and for FC Basel.


Primarily a centre-back capable of performing defensive midfield roles, Suchý featured in Slavia's senior team since 2005. Although he was linked with Rangers as well as other teams in England, France and Germany in summer 2008,[1] he stayed at Slavia. On 24 November 2009, he was loaned out to FC Spartak Moscow for one year with an option to buy for €3,5 Million. Later Spartak used buying option.

In January 2014, Suchý was loaned out to Swiss outfit FC Basel for the second half of the 2013–14 Swiss Super League season, again with a buying option at the end of that period.[2][3] Suchý played his debut for Basel on 2 February 2014 in the 3–1 away win at the Stade Olympique de la Pontaise against Lausanne-Sport. Just three days later he scored his first goal for his new team in the Swiss Cup Quarterfinal match against Le Mont on 5 February 2014 as Basel won 6–1.[4] At the end of the 2013–14 Super League season Suchý won the league championship with Basel.[5] They also reached the final of the 2013–14 Swiss Cup, but were beaten 2–0 by Zürich after extra time. Basel had qualified for Europa League knockout phase and here they advanced as far as the quarter-finals.

Basel bought out his contract after the end of the loan.[6]

International career[edit]

He was an integral member of the Czech side that was defeated by Argentina in the final of the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
