Finally, Lech Poznan got a new wing. Soon the transfer of midfielder Victoria Bilzno will be officially announced, all procedures have already been completed, and Adriel D’Avila Ba Loua will be the first Kolejorz player from Ivory Coast.
Adriel D’Avila Ba Loua was born on July 25, 1996 in Yopougon. The first player from Ivory Coast in the history of our club took his first steps in football at ASEC Mimosas. Six years ago he came to Europe on loan in the French reserves of Lille, and in the summer of 2016 he took another loan to the Danish Vejle BK. The young winger played in the 2016/2017 season regularly, being an important figure in his team, he played less in the 2017/2018 matches, but with Vejle he was promoted to the Super League (the Polish equivalent of Ekstraklasa).
The Danes decided not to buy the Ivorian, the player who was 170 cm tall and weighed 75 kg went on loan, this time he went to the Czech team MFK Karvin. After a regular match in the 2018/2019 season, the management of this club decided to buy the African from ASEC Mimosa. The left winger in the 2019/2020 season played 27 matches, scored a goal and scored 10 assists. In the summer of 2020, there was interest from Lech Pozna, who, while watching this player, was already thinking about bringing Ba Loua to Bułgarska St. However, the player himself preferred to go to Victoria Belzno, while Lech Poznan finally got to Jan Sikora.
According to the Czech media, Adriel D’Avila Ba Loua moved from Karvina to Victoria Pelzno in the amount of 16 million kroner (about 650 thousand euros) and not, as reported, among other things, by Transfermarkt – for about 900,000 euros. The 2020/2021 season was the best of his career with the Ivorian. The young football player played 39 matches on 4 fronts, scoring 8 goals in them, adding 6 assists to his achievements. Together with Viktoria Bilzno, he reached the final of the Czech Cup and finished fifth in the league, which was rewarded with promotion to the new UEFA Conference League Elimination.
In May, the coach of Victoria changed, the new coach Michal Bellic brought a new winger to Pilsen, John Mosquera from Slovan Liberec, who appreciated this player more than Pa Lowe. Victoria decided to sell her best players last season, because he was not an important part of the team as before due to the lack of destruction. In addition, the Czech club has financial problems, and the transfer of the winger will allow Victoria to recover the money she spent on this player.
Adriel D’Avila Ba Loua, who might have come to Lech Pozna a year ago, would become the next footballer after, say, Lubomir Satka, Arona Johansson, Bartosz Salamon, Alan Czerwiński, Jespera Karlstrom and Artur Sobiech, who would hit Bulgarska when you grew up Chance. Among other things, a very good knowledge of the capabilities of this previously noted player allowed the club to spend significant money. According to Lech Pozna, it is 1.2 million euros, but this amount has not yet been verified (the Czech side has not yet confirmed it).
The 25-year-old left winger is a former international for Côte d’Ivoire, having scored 10 goals and 20 assists in 79 Czech league matches. He also participated in 7 matches in the European Cups and scored two goals. Adriel Ba Loua won one of them twelve or so days ago, when Victoria lost dramatically in Wales with TNS as much as 0:4. The match eventually ended with the Czechs defeating the Czechs with the score 2:4, the last goal scored in overtime by an African presented in The second half, which scored a great goal from outside the penalty area. Victoria’s chances of promotion.
In the rematch, the Belzno team again dramatically lost to TNS 0: 1, in the end they won 3: 1, and thanks to a goal again in extra time, they led to extra time, and then to the penalty shootout. And the Czech team’s performance was better than the eleven, which they won 4-1, and in the final stage of qualifying for the Conference League, they will face CSKA Sofia, who eliminated NK Osijek who was coached by Nenad Belica.
According to the famous Czech website “Isport.cz”, the new Lechita was the best player in the rematch against The New Saints. According to an InStat report, the African winger fired 6 shots in Thursday’s match, 3 of which were on goal, dribbling 100%, winning 86% of 1v1 matches! Dribbling and duels are the 25-year-old’s strongest points this season. The big advantage of the left football player is also the quick transition from defense to attack.
Pa Lowe’s leading leg is the left, but this player has been playing primarily on the right flank for years, and in that aspect he will soon be competing with Michał Skóras for a place. Adriel D’Avila Ba Loua plays Joao Amaral style. He is a different type of winger, for example, Jakub Kamiński or Jan Sykora, he is a fast-paced competitor, he has very good acceleration in the first meters, winning many 1v1 matches thanks to his dynamics. In the Czech Republic, the former WKS youth representative’s biggest drawbacks were the poor finish of the position after hitting from a distance, playing with the head and playing in defense. Kolejorz’s new footballer is having big problems with the wrecking game that the coaching staff will have to work on a lot.
The 25-year-old played a league match yesterday and entered the field in the second half of the Slovan Liberec-Victoria Plezno 0:1 match. All formalities related to this transfer and a 4-year contract have been completed, and the official transfer of Iworyjczyk to Lech Poznań will be announced soon. Then the player returns to Victoria and helps her in the aforementioned confrontation against Bulgaria.
