AC Sparta Prague are delighted to announce a contract extension with Christian Frýdek, whose contract is now valid for the next 3,5 years.

“I’ve always wanted to show that I’m better than my dad and my brother. That’s the biggest motivation for me, to be the third Frýdek in Sparta. I want to deserve my spot in the first team and stay here for a long time,” said Christian after signing the extension.

“Christian is undoubtedly one of the biggest talents of the Czech football. He has all the expectations to fulfil his dream and achieve bigger success than his father and brother Martin. It is now only up to him to improve his talent. I’m happy Christian will remain a part of the club that raised him. I also want to thank Martin Frýdek sr. and Christian’s agent for reasonable negotiations,” said the club’s general manager Adam Kotalík.

Christian was born in Leverkusen, during his father’s spell in Bayer. Slowly he was making his way through Sparta youth academy and joined the first team for the summer pre-season last summer. Even though he returned back to U19s after that, he’s back with the squad for the winter training now.

“This is how I dreamt it. To be here for the summer training, then to go back and try it again this time. Now I want to hold on to my place here and remain a part of the team,” said the talented midfielder, who will celebrate his 18th birthday in February.

“It is a great success and a reward for his qualities and his performances. Sparta can now work on improving his talent, while he’s secured himself a great future. We hope he will keep getting better.

I was not surprised that he got his chance in the first team so quickly and so young. He’s bee proving his qualities for a long time. Only thing we were concerned with was is he was physically prepared for it, but he proved it this summer. I certainly do not doubt his football qualities though,” said the player’s agent David Nehoda from Nehoda Sport agency.

This season, Christian made a number of appearances in the U19s league, UEFA Youth League, Premier League International Cup and Junior league. Against Karviná, he made his top division debut, playing the last ten minutes of the match.
