A new season starts in two months, and preseason games begin in early July. Brno, Stare Mesto and Liberec will have a short off-season because they have entered the Inter-Toto Cup. There are some interesting transfer rumours floating around the Czech Republic during the off-season. Grygera (Sparta) might be going to either CSKA Moscow, Arsenal, Juventus or Dortmund. Sverkos (Ostrava) who was one of the top scorers in the league as a 19-year old might be on his way to Lokomotiv Moscow. Olomouc has lost two key players in the back. Rozehnal has left the club for Brugges ($750,000 transfer fee) and Kovac has left for Sparta Praha. Kovac is one of the best young defenders in the Czech league, and he will certainly be missed.
