Juraj Ančic Back in Trenčín after Six Years

Ančic hopes to get back after long-lasting injuries.

When he was leaving Trenčín six years ago, few people expected him to come back again. The offensive wing-midfield seemed to stand at the beginning of a stunning football career. A steep increase was expected from the player with experiences from junior national teams and even one appearance in the ‘A’ team. After Slovan Liberec, there came Sparta Prague. Who knows what would have come next not being the endless series of injuries that have brought complications for his further development.

The most famous Czech team’s interest in the player constantly fighting with injuries vanished. It was neither better in Žilina. “More injuries were coming and I felt helpless. They have been bothering me for four years,“ the ‘ever-injured’ footballer said sadly. Trainings have become rarity and games impossible missions for him. Instead, he has come through series of medical examinations of various kinds. That was also the reason why Žilina lost interest in him. His football future seemed to be uncertain. It has been his ‘mother’ club that came to help in the worst moments of his career. “We are aware of Juraj’s health problems. He grew in our club and had done a lot for us in the past. Now we want to help him. I am sure that thanks to the contacts of Tschen La Ling we have a real chance to do so,“ the club’s general manager Róbert Rybníček explained the decision to hire the 27-year-old player. His temporary contract will last until the end of the current season and it includes the option that he will become a regular member of the team after this period in case Trenčín’s interest persists.

He will have to go through a lot of individual training units before he is able to fully engage in the team’s activities. He is however not afraid of it. “I have probably overcome all possible problems with muscles and connective tissues – calf, thigh, inguens… Unfortunately, it seems that all the physicians have only treated symptoms not the causes of the injuries,“ the baffled player recollects. Only the blood tests made half a year ago by a specialist in Piešťany disclosed the true cause of the problems. “We consulted these findings with some experts who cooperate with Tschen La Ling. He does not avoid similar challenges. He had already helped Rafael van der Vaart or Wesley Sneijder in the past and now he wants to try to help Juraj. The club’s owner has already had a lot of meetings with various specialists. Based on the recommendation of the well-known physiotherapist Dick van Toorn, he even invested in an expensive device removing the source of Juraj’s problems,” Róbert Rybníček informed.

Juraj spent the last few days in Rotterdam where he underwent a special treatment with van Toorn. The treatment was successful and with the help of the device it began to improve Juraj’s state. “According to the latest news, there is a high probability that the origin of his problems has been removed,“ the general manager announced.

Encouraged with the positive development, the player coming from Trenčín launched his preparation for the new job in the jersey of AS. His bad luck was however not to be over. “I played in a prep game after some time and I twisted my knee. It seemed that I would have to undergo another surgery. After another medical examination in the Netherlands, I decided for a conservative treatment and special exercises. I will see in a month if it was the right decision. It is quite clear however that I will have to pause in the fall. I do not want to make it worse,“ the unlucky footballer stated patiently.

Ančic has been going through a very complicated period. His mental stability has been tested well. He patiently comments on the quick fall from Sparta through Žilina all the way to the first-league Slovak club; “The situation has become really bad. I was offered a help from Trenčín. Moreover, I am at home here. I have always liked to come back. I have often even sacrificed my holidays and spent whole time in Trenčín. The club is very perspective. There are a lot of young and talented boys here. Some of them may become really good players. They just have to work hard, be careful about their health and avoid injuries, and appreciate the conditions they have here.“ He is not forgetting about his own football future though; “I am not youngest, but I still believe I can play on the highest level. I still have ambitions. I have practically been out for four years. It would be a big mistake not to try it again. I am thankful to Trenčín for the chance they are giving me.“
