    In Conversation with... Lukáš Hrádecký

    Our guest for this episode, inspired the entire FFS team to turn up for a five-way Zoom. Current Bayer Leverkusen and Finland goalkeeper, Lukáš Hrádecký, spoke to us for an hour about, well, his entire career. A career that started at TPS Turku and took him to Denmark and then Germany. Luke explains the perils of hearing a room with Teemu Pukki and why he turned down Manchester United.We learn what situations give him 'brown underpants' and his perspective of his 3rd minute red card and following 'walk of shame'. He also explains the camaraderie among the national team, created by a club-style atmosphere in the dressing room. He also gets his Huuhkaja mask out – no, that's not a euphemism!Show notes and links
