Košice wins Slovak Champion title (video included)

The team of the eastern Slovak city has been under a great pressure since last year’s championship match. Coach Rostislav Čada, who replaced Anton Tomko, had been in a difficult position, especially after several failures and losses. New encouragement came in December when goalkeeper Ján Laššák arrived but in January several players were forced to leave the team after being caught drinking beer in checkrooms.

After initial dissatisfaction from fans, the situation started to break and the final match against Slovan Bratislava was an enormous challenge. But Košice won 5:2 and successfully defended its title from last year. Čada has now had his contract extended to 2013, the Sme daily wrote on April 23.
