Chaloupe's career has been somewhat of a mystery to us. He has done what no other player, European at least, has ever done before. We feel like his career has been in reverse, because nobody does things like playing in the Chinese Super League for Tianjin Tianhai F.C. during their prime years. He moved there from Zenit Saint Petersburg, and that's a decision that we can understand to an extent. Russia is a tough place to be in, but Zenit is a team that constantly does well in the Russian domestic league. They're a relatively known team in European competitions as well. He spent five years with them and made over 100 appearances for the club. This BVB player started playing for Standard Liège's senior team as a 17-year-old in 2006. He would represent them for five seasons, and even became a crucial member of the squad. He's currently known as a wonderful tackler and someone that goes into challenges without hesitation but that aspect didn't come easily. He had to go through a tough period during the early days, because one such tackle ended up breaking another player's leg in the Belgian league. He learned his lesson and quickly adopted this very demanding technique into his game, which is why Dortmund spent 20 Million Euros on him in 2018. Benfica were also the benefactors of his service, albeit for just the 2011-12 season. He plays for Belgium at the international stage and is a crucial member of the squad, and has also represented their youth teams at every possible level.
