Skacel not ready to discuss future

January 30, 2006

Hearts midfielder Rudi Skacel wants to leave all thoughts on his future until the end of the season, when he hopes to make a World Cup appearance.

The 26-year-old is on loan from Marseille until the end of the campaign and, after scoring 16 times, the Czech Republic man has become an integral part of the team.

However, the player is refusing to commit himself to a decision on his future yet.

Skacel said: 'I don't think about these questions for now.

'I have a contract until the summer and I'm enjoying this time.

'I like Edinburgh and the supporters. We have a fantastic dressing room and the players are like my family.

'I'm happy but we'll wait and see as this is an important season because of the World Cup finals.

'There's a small chance I could go and I want to go and help my country.

'Maybe my family at Hearts will help me to the World Cup. I want to help them and maybe they will help me.

'We have 14 games left in the league and maybe we'll take the title and Scottish Cup. If I also score some more goals I might go to Germany.

'But I'm not thinking too much about the future at this time.

'I want to concentrate on playing perfectly every week to help my team and maybe my team will help me in return.'
