Giant Czech striker Jan Koller has left Dortmund on a free transfer and signed a two-year contract with French club Monaco. Monaco will be looking to Koller to provide them with the firepower they need to improve on last year’s disappointing showing in Le Championnat. Koller only returned to action last month after a long spell out with a knee injury sustained in September. The 33 year-old has an impressive international scoring record with 42 goals in 67 appearances. The Czechs will be hoping that his little and large combination with Milan Baros will carry them through a tough group which includes Italy, the USA and Ghana. The prize for qualification? A potential second round clash with Brazil…oh dear..
