Bejbl returns home

Radek Bejbl has rejoined 1. liga side SK Slavia Praha from RC Lens.

Radek Bejbl, who was part of the Czech Republic side which finished second at EURO 96™, has rejoined 1. liga side SK Slavia Praha.

Lens to Slavia
The 29-year-old midfield player has signed a three-year deal with the Czech first division club that he left in July 1996 to join Primera División team Club Atlético de Madrid. Bejbl subsequently joined RC Lens in Le Championnat in 2000 before his move back home.

Injury ravaged
Bejbl has suffered from severe injury problems in recent seasons and has played just five minutes of football this year. Now that he is fully fit though, he is looking forward to meeting up with some of his former team-mates.

EURO 96™ runners-up
Bejbl is the fourth player from the national side that lost 2-1 to Germany at Wembley six years ago to return to the 1. liga after goalkeeper Petr Kouba, midfield player Karel Poborsky (both AC Sparta Praha) and former national team captain Jirí Nemec (FK Chmel Blšany) moved back to the Czech Republic earlier in the summer.
