Newcastle United new boys, David Rozehnal is having a new boy this week in Newcastle on Wednesday. The Czech star is targetting his first goal for Newcastle on Sunday and will celebrate it for his son.
“I am very happy and there would be no better way to celebrate than with a win this weekend. If I can score a goal for Luka then that would be great too.” Said Roz, quoted from the official site.
David Sebastian Rozehnal born July 5, 1980 in Šternberk, Czech Republic. Rozehnal played for the Czech Republic at the Euro 2004 and all three of their games at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. At club level, he has represented Sigma Olomouc and Club Brugge where He won the Belgian Coupe de Championnat, Jupiler League title in 2005.
Rozehnal’s wife, Petra could have opted to return home in order prevent her baby having a dual nationality, but later after successfully settling on Tyneside following his husband’ £2.9m move from Paris St Germain this summer, she is delighted to remain in the North-East and having his baby as the Geordie boy.
“It’s important that my wife stays here to have the baby,” said Rozehnal, “I’m settled with my football, and also with my private life.”
Rozehnal has started in every Newcastle Game from the start of this season. He is begins to set himself to achieve the level of his Czech Republic compatriate, the adopted Geordie Pavel Srnicek, who has 180 appearances for the Magpies in the 1990s. Srnicek is also famously wore a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Pavel is a Geordie”.
“It’s nice to see because I never had it when I played in the Czech Republic. There was a bit more interest in Bruges, and a bit more again when I went to Paris, but it wasn’t really anything like it is here.” Said Rozehnal about the Toon Army increased attentions for him.
Well David, you will be the next Pavel Srnicek in my honest opinion. You have a Geordie’ son and that has shown us how much is your loyalty and dedication for the club. Congratulations once again for you, your wife and the Geordie Luka.
