Christian Herc left Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer and joined Viktoria Plzen on a two-year loan with a buying option. His move to the Czech Republic hasn’t gone to plan, however, as the 21-year-old is struggling for playing time under Adrián Guľa.
Herc has made just one first-team appearance for Plzen this season, starting in their MOL Cup win over FC Hlucin (September 25, 2019). He finds himself behind Lukas Kalvach, Roman Prochazka, Tomas Horava and Dominik Janosekin the pecking order and has spent the majority of the campaign with the reserves as a result.
The Slovakian u21 international has made the matchday squad on three occasions in the Fortuna Liga, but he’s currently out of favour and may be regretting his decision to leave Wolves. Herc joined the Midlands outfit from Nitra in 2014 but never made a first-team appearance. He was stuck in the reserves and moved to Plzen for more opportunities.
Unfortunately, the midfielder finds himself in a similar position in the Czech Republic. It’s hard to see Plzen triggering his buying option if he’s not playing and his loan may even be cut short.
