SWINDON TOWN: Czech-ing back in?
PAOLO Di Canio will offer Lukas Magera the chance to resurrect his career at the County Ground, but only if he shows the desire to make a success of himself at Swindon Town.
The Czech striker is currently on loan to Banik Ostrava having endured a difficult start to his career in English football, which only yielded one goal in 15 appearances.
Magera has played nine times during his loan spell, scoring once, but Di Canio will welcome him back to his squad for the assault on League One if he wants to return.
“We will have to see what he wants to do, but he scored his first goal for them a few days ago after nine matches, but he has been playing in the midfield,” said Di Canio.
“If he is happy there in his home town we can sort out the situation with his contract, but if he wants to come back then I will train him again.
“I do not cut my nose to spite my face, because I am a manager, so if he wants to come back he is welcome.”
But while the Italian will welcome the giant striker back into the squad, he warned him getting into the team may prove tougher.
“It is obvious if I have 26 players here I can not use 26 every week, so I will choose my players every week.
“In this moment I will integrate him with the group because they are paid by Swindon, but this season it was difficult because there is a priority in life which was to win.
“I need to leave out bad apples, it is not an insult, but it can happen in some moment that lazy people do not work in training and force other people to train badly.
“The quality must be better, and I am right.”
