Radim Kučera (born 1 March 1974) is a Czech football coach and former footballer who played most of his career for SK Sigma Olomouc.

Playing career[edit]

Kučera began his playing career in the Czech league, playing for FK Dukla Hranice, VP Frýdek-Místek and Kaučuk Opava. He moved to Gambrinus liga side SK Sigma Olomouc, where he would become captain. He appeared in 280 Czech league matches before moving to German Fußball-Bundesliga side Arminia Bielefeld in August 2005.[1]

When Kučera joined Arminia, fellow Czechs Petr Gabriel and David Kobylík were in the squad, which helped him adjust to Bundesliga football. His five year spell with Arminia was marked with several relegation battles, culminating in relegation after the 2008–09 season.[1]

Despite being one of the most successful Czech football players during his time with Sigma Olomouc and also in Germany with Arminia, Kučera has never played for the Czech national football team.[1]
