New contract for Peter Olayinka
The 25-year old Nigerian winger joined Slavia at the end of July 2018 for 3.2 million euro which was the club’s record fee at that time. He has started to 85 competitive games since, scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists. He was one of the key players in our 2020/21 UEFA Europa League campaign so far scoring against Leverkusen home and Nice away. He also scored away at Midtjylland in the UCL Play-off.
Mostly on the left wing, he helped Slavia to 2 Czech league titles, one MOL Cup victory, one Czechoslovak Supercup and to qualify for the UCL Group Stage in 2019/20.
“I am happy that I could extend my contract in Slavia and that I can continue playing for the club. It is very important to see that the club trusts me and that they want me to stay. It is pushing me forward,” Olayinka said.
“My first year here was quite difficult, but now I am enjoying myself and everything is going good. This season and the last one were both fantastic,” the 25-year old Nigerian added.
