Slovak football striker Ladislav Almási also asked for a place in the national team with his performances in the jersey of the Ostrava Baník. Coach Štefan Tarkovič called him to a demanding October double match against Russia and Croatia.
Štefan Tarkovič nominated four goalkeepers and an unexpected joker to attack
Twenty-two-year-old “hippo” Ladislav Almási has played in the jersey of Ružomberok, the national team under the age of 21, and last visited in the Russian Akhmat Grozny. He has been a player of Baník Ostrava since the summer, for which he has already managed to score four goals. According to corridor information, the club paid Ružomberok half a million euros for it.
Since the time of Adam Nemc, we have not typologically had a footballer like Ladislav Almási in the national team. “We needed a player like that. An alternative to the classic nine. A player we can also rely on in terms of body structure. He is doing well in the Czech Republic, he is a significant personality in Ostrava and I believe that he will also help the representation, “ stated Štefan Tarkovič at the nomination press conference.
And the helmsman of the national team then added: “I would love to have space to try it out. We have Laca in detail, we have been watching him since he left Slovakia. I think that a team can use such a player typologically. It will be a great benefit for us to have such an opportunity. Of course, Laco is with us for the first time, we are playing a very difficult double match. Its use will be optimal when the match requires it. “
Not only Ladislav Almasi, but the whole of Ostrava is doing well. After nine laps, Baník is on the fourth place in the Czech league with a five-point gap to the leader of Pilsen. In the table, only the most successful teams of recent seasons are ahead of him – apart from Victoria, both Prague “S”.
