The last goal, which was scored at the highest level by the new Spartan Jakub Jankto, is already quite a beard. It dates back to the 2020/2021 season, when he was still active in the colors of Sampdoria Genoa and sixteen months ago he made waves in the AS Rome network.
Subsequently, the 26-year-old ex-Slavic did not score in Getafe and so far he has not succeeded in his flight mission, where he has completed four FORTUNA:LIGA duels with a total workload of 215 minutes.
According to expert Jiří Kotrba, the former Ascoli or Udinese midfielder joined the squad, where there are super players, but that in itself does not make the team that Prague 7 would need. “I’m not sure that Jankto is a player who will bring results to Sparta. He needs help from others even in the youth team. He is not a player with a difference and a leader who would pull it,” surprised the sixty-four-year-old expert, whose opinion was offered by Deník Sport on Thursday.
At the famous club, whose last premiership dates back eight years, he was the brightest signing of the summer. Even Kotrba is convinced that he will still help Priske’s selection, but it will take time. “It certainly doesn’t help him to have to play in the starting lineup, because it’s obvious that he’s not doing well physically. Also, he’s not in shape, so it would help if he alternated and gradually got into it. This way he just confirms that it’s not him and his head is confused. He is a good football player. Only now he has to endure the worse period and face the fact that he is out of form, it is not up to him and he must not give in to the fact that he has failed. But if it sweeps him, it will be a shame” the ex-coach of Sparta, Brno or Liberec offered his view.
In any case, the two-time winner of the cup with Žižkov and Jablonec feels that today’s boys are experiencing alternating periods. Sometimes good, then worse, which is said not to have happened so much before. “Two years ago, Jankto looked great, not today. But the generation of Poborský or Šmicer looked good for many years in a row,” pointed out in Sport a man who also sat on the bench of the Czech twenty-one team thirteen years ago.
