Ever since the start of the championship, Poli has been looking to strengthen up their ranks, by testing different free agents. Jiří Krejčí and Rafael Rocha are the ones that convinced the technical staff and the management that they could be valuable for Poli. They have both been tested in a friendly match against a third league team, Național Sebiș, won 2-0.
Jiří Krejčí is a 24 year old Czech central defender, measuring 1m90, and will prove a tough challenge to Luchin, Cisovsky, Burcă and Mera for a spot on the team. He will also be a menace in our adversaries's box, having already scored with a header at his debut.
Rafael Rocha, nicknamed Rato, is a 21 year old Brazilian who plays left back, and has already been considered to be the equivalent of Helder on the left side, which means that Sepsi has to watch over his performance.
Despite some minor technicalities, the two players have already been officialy presented on the team, and are looking to play their first official matches. We will see if they will happen this year, whether for the main team or for the second one.
In related news, the year has already ended for Curtean who has suffered a knee injury that will keep him from playing the remaining stages until the winter break.
