Former Arsenal star Tomas Rosicky has expressed his confidence in Nigerian striker Victor Olatunji’s ability to succeed at Czech Republic champions Sparta Prague. Olatunji recently signed a multi-year contract with the club, leaving Slovan Liberec behind.
Olatunji caught the eye in the Fortuna Liga last season, scoring four goals in 14 appearances. His impressive performances attracted the attention of Sparta Prague, one of the top teams in the Czech Republic, leading to his acquisition by the club.
Rosicky, who is currently serving as the club’s sporting director, is delighted with the signing of Olatunji. He believes that the young striker will seamlessly fit into the team and contribute significantly.
In a statement released by the club’s Twitter handle, Rosicky said, “Olatunji is a player with interesting physical and speed parameters. Typologically, Olatunji is an attacker that we do not have in our squad. Victor has the potential to continue developing in our environment, which is a key reason why we are bringing him in.”
With the new Fortuna Liga season set to kick off this weekend, Olatunji will be eager to make an immediate impact for Sparta Prague as they defend their title.
It is clear that Sparta Prague sees great potential in Olatunji, and his signing reflects their ambition to strengthen the squad and maintain their status as champions. As the young Nigerian striker settles into his new environment, all eyes will be on him to see if he can live up to the expectations and make a lasting impact for his new club.
