Former FK Dukla Praha, FC Spartak Trnava, ŠK Slovan Bratislava and Czechoslovakia defender Ján Zlocha died on Monday aged 71.
The Bratislava-born player rose to prominence at Dukla, featuring in their 1966/67 European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-final defeat by eventual winners Celtic FC. Zlocha then joined Spartak Trnava, winning the Czechoslovakian title in 1968 before returning to boyhood club Slovan Bratislava, with whom he triumphed in the 1969 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final against FC Barcelona.
More success followed in 1970 with a domestic title at Slovan Bratislava, making him the only player to achieve the feat with his hometown side and rivals Spartak Trnava. His talents were also recognised on the international stage with a call-up into the Czechoslovakia squad for the 1970 FIFA World Cup.
