The tragic Sunday news of the death of Marián Čišovský affected the whole of the Czechia and Slovakia. The Pilsen players themselves were also crushed, which had to be supported during the day by an emotional speech in the cabin by the general manager of the club, Adolf Šádek.
However, Viktoria managed the match, won 2: 1 over Sparta and sent the win to Marián Čišovský “up there”.
Even before the match, fans could light candles and leave flowers or messages at the Memorial Site of the Fighters’ Gate next to the stadium. During the match, the players of Pilsen ran out of jerseys with the name tag of the fighter Čišovský, who had been struggling with incurable Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis for six long years.
Martin’s wife and their children Tina, Maroš and Martin also sat in the stands in Štruncovy sady. Everyone could then watch the touching thank-you note, during which the football players of Victoria and their fans applauded for a long time.
After the match, his long-time teammates and friends Marek Bakoš and Matúš Kozáčik, who also did not avoid tears, came to comfort Čišovský’s family.
For Marián Čišovský, who was a key man of the Pilsen team for many years and a few years ago he drove around Messi or Ribery in the Champions League, the fans also prepared a banner, which was subsequently borrowed by his former defense partner David Limberský.
It said, “Rest in the room of the Goblet.”
