Just as he was getting settled in he was gone. After six months of Hearts torture, David Vanecek has signed for Puskas Akademia in Hungary, following his departure from Tynecastle.

He’s signed a two year deal with the Hungarian side. Before he starts his new adventure, Vanecek should make sure he stays clear of one thing whilst he settles in at his new club.

The Czech striker has to avoid social media. It played a part in his Hearts downfall.

Social media sent Vanecek down the wrong road

Before he’d even arrived in Gorgie, Vanecek was hyping up his arrival. He was doing countdowns to his arrival, putting up pictures of Edinburgh and displaying goal montages of himself online prior to his Hearts entrance.

The odd message of support for your new team is fine. Vanecek went too far, hyping himself up to be this messiah-like figure who’d be the answer to Hearts’ striker woes.

In reality he was all talk. The Czech striker had turned up unfit and never really recovered from this. He’d set his own bar sky high via his Instagram and other forms of social media.

When it came down to the business of playing football Vanecek couldn’t cut it. It’s a good job he’s moved on as hopefully he can try and rebuild his career. On the flip side, Hearts now have an extra bit of room in the wage budget.

Vanecek never had bad intentions when posting to social media. It would appear though that through the excitement he built for himself, he set himself up for a nasty fall.

All the Instagram stories and Facebook posts count for nothing. He tried his luck at Hearts, but ultimately, Vanecek will go down as one of the worst signings in recent times.
