PRAGUE - Slavia have strengthened the defence with full-back Jan Bořil. The soon-to-be 25-year-old has signed a contract with the club until 30. June 2019.“I am very happy to be here since it has been a long journey. I was supposed to transfer in summer 2015 but it didn’t work out,” explains the newest reinforcement. “My goal is to reach the European competitions with Slavia and I can play anywhere in the line-up,” introduces himself Jan Bořil.
His versatility is appreciated by the coach. “He had successful seasons in Boleslav and always proved that he belonged to the line-up,” says Dušan Uhrin.

Capable of playing at left-back and right-back, the twenty-four-year-old has settled into the first team of Mladá Boleslav. Bořil started his career in Boleslav at the age of eight, reaching the A team at the age of 18 when the talented defender debuted in the first league against České Budějovice. In July 2010 Bořil was loaned out to Viktoria Žižkov and he stayed there until December 2011, celebrating promotion to the first league. After his return to Boleslav, the former youth national player has also helped his team in the UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds.
