Because of an unusual injury – bruises on the bones – Vladimir Darida came to two meetings of the soccer team and also to the captain's ribbon, which was taken over by Bořek Dočkal. Hertha Berlin, however, did not object, as an introvert in the role of captain.
"I am pleased that some activities connected with the captain's band will go away and I can only concentrate on football," Darida told reporters at a meeting today. "I am a very introverted type and it is difficult for me to talk to more people, so I can concentrate on being a leader on the field," he added.
The national team is the first time since June. Early in the season he struggled with an unusual injury. "I made a bad move and my knees turned. In the first few seconds, we thought I had crickets, and the doctors confirmed that in many cases the crossed ligaments would break, but that would hold it back, so it looked good and after three days of practicing again, "he wrote.
But the knee still hurts, and the second resonance examination reveals the problem. "They hit my tibia and my calf a little cracked in my bone and my blood flowed in. So we had bruises on the bone, and one part of the bone was not bleeding and dying, so it hurt many atypical injuries," he said.
For three weeks he had to walk on a stick and not stiffen his legs. "Then I began to practice slowly, running in an anti-gravity training simulator, which helped me to pursue physicists," said Darida.
He was almost ready for the national team meeting in October where new coach Jaroslav Šilhavý wanted him, but finally agreed that they were still waiting.
"We made contact with the coach and until the last moment we decided to leave, but I did not know how the knee would respond after the break and did not take risks, it turned out to be a good decision because the knees were more relaxed and gathered," said Pilsen descendants.
Now his knees are fine and Darida can play two full matches for Herth. "I was quite surprised that I felt good in the game and after them, just to know when I started at Dortmund," he added.
He feels to play the entire match even for the national team, who await the preparatory duel in Poland on Thursday. "They had a very strong attack when we saw Lewandowski, so he was in very good condition and shooting almost every Own game was very dangerous but I hope we can overcome their attack. This will be a good review of our defense phase."
The League of Nations' final duel with Slovakia in Prague will follow. "In Poland, we can try something before an important match with Slovakia, which we need to handle, and we really don't admit anything but remain in our group and not fall," Darida warned that defeat with Slovakia could mean falling into the league the lower one.
"This is a big derby, and in Germany, it's like a teammate in a taxi when I have fun with them, I have two teammates from Slovakia (Duda and Pekarík), so we deal with that, so it's pretty quiet because we are the first match was won by us, so the kids from Slovakia didn't play too much, so they would stay the same after the second match and I didn't want to hear from them that they beat us, "Darida added.
