Negotiations on the return of the Cobra, as Ondrášek is nicknamed due to the tattoo on his back, were not easy from overseas, but in the end Pilsen from Dallas FC still got it.
“An extremely high-quality player who managed to establish himself abroad. In Norway, Poland and most recently in the USA, he confirmed the role of gunner everywhere. In addition, he is a member of the national team. With his arrival, we expand our possibilities in the offensive, he is a typologically suitable player and I believe that he can adapt quickly and will be a great benefit, “said the general manager of the club Adolf Šádek.
