Knapp Signs for Two Years, May Stay Longer

Lubor Knapp: “I decided quite quickly and I think I did the right thing.“

AS captain Lubor Knapp will play in Trenčín also in the upcoming season. He signed a two-year contract this week. “The contract is for one plus one year. Thus, if the club’s management is satisfied, I should stay here another two years,“ the almost 33 years old player clarified.

The ‘engine’ of the midfield formation stays in spite of several offers from his native country (Czech Republic). “I do not want to mislead, but there had been some interest from top leagues both in Slovakia and Czech Republic,“ Knapp confirmed, but clarified the reasons for staying in Trenčín right away: “I had thought of staying here long before I signed this contract. Trenčín is a beautiful town, the team and teammates are very good, and the management is carrying out all obligations. In fact, there are very good conditions here. The negotiations were quick and correct. I decided quite quickly and I think I did the right thing. There are fine people and fans here. I am glad that I am staying.“

In case of fulfilling the new contract, Knapp will be 35. A lot of players say goodbye to professional sport at this age. “When I am healthy, I would like to continue maybe three or four more years. I am also thinking about the future though. I would like to update my trainer’s license this year. However, right now I am concentrating on my player’s duties,“ said Knapp who confirmed that he has discussed the possibility of utilizing his rich experience after his career is over with the management.
