I really appreciate that FCA showed such a big interest in me personally.” Most recently, Suchy was at FC Basel, where he wore the captain’s armband and made 163 appearances, scoring eleven goals. During his time with the club, Suchy was Swiss champion four times in a row and lifted the Swiss Cup twice between 2014 and 2017. During his career, the 31 year old has made 38 Champions League appearances. In his first UCL game for Basel, Suchy faced Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid, and scored his only goal in the competition during a 4-0 win over PFK Ludogorets Razgrad.
