Jaroslav Drobný (born 18 October 1979) is a Czech international football goalkeeper who currently plays for German Bundesliga football club Hertha BSC. He has played for the Berlin club since Summer 2007. Jaroslav Drobný has previously played for České Budějovice, Panionios, Fulham, ADO Den Haag, Ipswich Town and Bochum.


Club career

Drobný's first club was local club SK Chrudium. In his first season he signed a contract with his former team's rivals, FC Vitkovice. The next step was the First Division club S.K. České Budějovice. He spent his first professional years there from 1999 till 2002.

The next step in his career was a transfer to Panionios in the Alpha Ethniki, the Premier Division of Greek football. Drobný calls this period the most happy period of his life till now.[citation needed]

In 2005, he was spotted by Fulham, and in the summer, the club having sold Edwin van der Sar, he was bought by the West London club. However, Drobný was injured shortly after his arrival, and upon returning to fitness failed to get into the team. He was loaned for half a season to the Dutch club ADO Den Haag. When he returned his contract was terminated by mutual consent in August 2006, without Drobný having played a first-team game for the club.

On 27 October 2006 he joined Ipswich Town on a short term deal, but failed to make a first team appearance. On 23 January 2007 he was loaned to VfL Bochum.

Drobný immediately took over the position on goal from the unlucky Danish keeper Peter Skov-Jensen. On 27 January 2007 he made his Bundesliga debut with VfL Bochum against Mainz.[1] Drobný played a good season. So after that season the financially stronger club Hertha BSC made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Since the 2007–08 season, he has played in the German capital.

International career

He has played 16 times for the Czech national team's Under-21 side, but his opportunities have been limited in the full squad. On 11 February 2009, Drobný made his debut for the senior team in a 0:0 draw against Morocco.
