Czech Republic defender Tomas Ujfalusi is looking forward to a rest before the start of the World Cup.
The Fiorentina stopper is currently carrying an elbow problem, although it is not restricting his performances.
However, with the World Cup finals in Germany just over a month away, Ujfalusi is keen for a break before the Czechs' first game against the USA on June 12.
"I have some problems with the elbow, but I can play normally with it," Ujfalusi told Pravo.
"But the fatigue is bigger and bigger, so I am looking forward to having a rest before the World Cup."
Ujfalusi has discussed the issue of fatigue with his compatriots Pavel Nedved and Marek Jankulovski, who also play in Serie A.
Nedved shares a similar view to the centre half, although Jankulovski's chief concern is his lack of playing time with Milan.
"I talked personally to Pavel before the game between Fiorentina and Juventus," added Ujfalusi.
"He is also looking forward to seeing the end of the season.
"Marek is frustrated he doesn't play at Milan."
