LASK began rebuilding its defences, which are not always stable in the fall, by signing with Filip Twardzik. The central defender comes to Linz from Spartak Trnava, where he will sign a contract until the summer of 2025.
The 28-year-old Czech plays as a left central defender, but can also play as a quarterback on the left. It is considered a fast leader and easy to play.
The former Czech junior team player played for the youth team of RW Erfurt and Hertha BSC before moving to the Celtic youth team. He was a four-time champion with the Scots, but only used seven times with the Pros.
In February 2015 he moved to Bolton Wanderers, after which he played in the Czech Republic (Vitkovice and Karvina) and in Slovakia (Ruzomberok and Trnava). In the fall, Toarzyk was voted as the best defender in the Slovak League Fortuna.
“Philippe has already gained experience in many countries and can be flexibly deployed on a defensive basis. The fact that he speaks German is another plus point, he will quickly integrate into the team,” says LASK’s sporting director, Radovan Vujanovic.
Coach Andreas Wieland: “With his speed and technical skills, Philip will enrich our game. Despite being a defensive player, he regularly proves that he can score goals.”
The newcomer explains: “At LASK, great things have happened in recent years, the club is regularly represented internationally. For me as a player, this is a very exciting challenge.”
