At just 22 years of age, Slavia Prague star Adam Hlousek is a rising star in Czech football and has already made three appearances for the Senior National Team. He is a versatile player who mainly plays as a left winger but can also be deployed as a centre forward.
His energetic nature combined with his silky technical skills and blistering pace make him a very dangerous player to have roaming on the flank. He is one of the most durable players in his league with seemingly never-ending stamina, while also posing a threat from set pieces.
Hlousek has been very unlucky with injuries which have hindered his development considerably. While playing for former club FK Jablonec in 2007, the midfielder broke his shin bone and was sidelined for five months.
Upon returning to action, Hlousek was soon back to his best, providing the sort of displays that have earned him a move to Slavia Prague, one of the Czech Republic's most respected clubs, for a fee of €800k.
He had made 24 appearances for his new side, scoring four goals and assisting for two more, before suffering yet another frustrating setback in the shape of a right knee injury that kept him out of contention for six months. He missed the remainder of the 2009-2010 season.
