TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Transfer

FC Dallas have transferred forward Zdeněk Ondrášek to FC Viktoria Plzeň in the Czech First League, the club announced Sunday.

Per team policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

“We have loved having Kobra here at FC Dallas,” FC Dallas president Dan Hunt said in a statement. “He was a big part of our run to the playoffs in 2019 and will always be a part of the FC Dallas family. We wish him the best with his future club and with the Czech National Team.”

“Family is number one. As long as it’s about family, everything goes aside,” said Ondrášek. “Things happened pretty quickly this year. I had to decide quickly, and I did decide. I put the family in front of soccer. I would like to thank everybody here: in the club, around the club, in the city.”

On Thursday, FC Dallas coach Luchi Gonzalez addressed Ondrášek's absence from the squad, saying the forward was dealing "with a family situation."

The 31-year-old, nicknamed “Kobra,” joined FC Dallas on December 18, 2018. He appeared in 25  matches across all competitions, recording nine goals and three assists. He made his MLS debut on March 23, 2019 vs. Colorado Rapids and scored his first FC Dallas goal in the 59th minute against the Montreal Impact on August 17, 2019 to beginning Dallas’ comeback in the 3-3 draw. FC Dallas compiled a 4-0-3 record in matches Ondrášek scored.
