Cerny started his career with hometown club FK Příbram in the Czech Republic but left to join the Ajax academy in 2013. After two years impressing with the U19 side that included the likes of Abdelhak Nouri and Donny van de Beek, Cerny made his professional debut in March 2015 with Jong Ajax in the Eerste Divisie, going on to make 18 appearances in the Dutch second division scoring five times.

At the start of last season Cerny made his first team debut and later scored the winner in a 2-1 victory over Celtic in the Europa League. The 18-year-old was named as the Czech talent of the year and continued to get opportunities in the Ajax first team after the turn of the year. The winger started the crucial final game of the season against De Graafschap, but had a game to forget as he missed a big chance to make it 2-0 for his side and Ajax went on to draw which handed PSV the title.

Style of play

A lightning quick winger, Cerny has excellent technique on the ball and loves to take on opponents and drive towards goal. The youngster is also a composed finisher in the box with a lethal left foot.

What to expect from Cerny this season

With Peter Bosz taking over there is competition for places in the Ajax first team and Cerny will be aiming to impress the coach to become a first choice winger. The 18-year-old has been one of the most exciting talents at Ajax since joining the club and this may be his year to shine if he is given the chance.
