“It’s been a turbulent week. At the beginning I completed the first training sessions in Chrudim, on Friday we were to play a match. But the covid hit there, so the coach preferred to give us time off until Monday. So I have to report there again, and until then I agreed with the coaches that I can still prepare with Brno, “explained the 25-year-old goalkeeper with first-league experience zigzagging for a new engagement.
He decided to perform due to the higher workload he does not have in Zbrojovka, because he mainly covers the back of the experienced Martin Berkovec.
Nevertheless, in the Brno jersey, he still quite unexpectedly competed in the Tipsport League against Vyškov on Saturday. He helped him win 3: 1, collected from the penalty once and then (apparently definitely) said goodbye.
“I did not expect to go to the match. But a lot of events happened that week; by Wednesday I was in Chrudim, on Thursday I was preparing individually and I was on a test that was negative. On Friday I joined Zbrojovka again. Berky (Martin Berkovec) had a Wednesday duel in Pilsen and Kuba Šiman (a reinforcement of Zbrojovka from Pilsen) had a fever during the week. I’m glad I caught it, “Floder smiled.
The match allegedly went without nostalgia on his part. Rather, Floder was relieved that he hadn’t been hurt. He does not plan to leave Brno for good, he still has a valid contract for a year and a half.
Hosting considered from the end of the autumn part of the season. “I summed up my workload, and I knew I wanted to have it higher. When a player is not playing, there is no way to improve. The team is walking in Brno, I expected the coach to have no reason to reach out to him. I went to the (manager) Mr. Požár, he saw it the same way, and work started on my spring hosting, “the Brno goalkeeper described the development of events.
This year he intervened in only four second-league and three cup matches. He captured the first league thirteen times in the last last.
He would like to jump into summer training again in Zbrojovka – at that time already in the optimal first league scenario. The Brno team has a ten-point lead at the top of the FNL table and is moving forward.
Šiman, whom Zbrojovka acquired from Pilsen, is in Brno to host with an option. Martin Berkovec’s contract ends.
“I’m definitely not packing. This half-year can help me, I want to move and then fight for the position again, “Floder looks out.
The vision of playing for bare second-league survival does not scare him at all, although he knows that the table speaks for itself. Chrudim overwinters on the penultimate and therefore descent rung.
“It’s an experience and a challenge, too,” the goalkeeper shrugs. “I don’t mind fighting for the bottom. I’m glad I’m going to catch it, and I want to help Chrudim save. In Zbrojovka there was a completely different pressure to win every match, in Chrudim it will probably be about collecting some points. I was told that I was looking for the number one position there, and I am looking forward to it. I experienced the relegation worries in the spring in the first league. It is important to stay positive and not let the blanket fall on you. That will only affect the performance, which no one wants, “said Floder.
