The Rock-Star Life of Kubik

Lubos Kubik spent much of his playing career at some of the best teams in Europe, including a stint at FC Metz in France. People here don't forget about their footballers, which is why along with a feature article in today's edition of one of the local papers, Lubos has friends everywhere we go. It doesn't hurt that he speaks "5 or 6" languages.

Today after training we saw for ourselves the power of Lubos' popularity. While walking out of the training facility, these fans were walking toward the "Palais" for a basketball tournament, when one immediately spotted Lubos and shook his hand.

I don't think many of us would be that recognized, especially in a different country.
