Greško goes back to Leverkusen

Slovakian international midfielder Vratislav Greško is to rejoin Bayer 04 Leverkusen as a free agent on a two-year contract as the club prepare for the UEFA Cup.

Slovakia international midfielder Vratislav Greško is to return to Bayer 04 Leverkusen as a free agent as the German club prepare for UEFA Cup football.

Perfect fit
The 29-year-old will sign a two-year contract on Monday as he returns to the club he played for between 1999 and 2001. "We are pleased to be signing Greško, who fits our system. Since we are going to be playing in Europe, we need a large squad," explained Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Völler, whose side will start their UEFA Cup campaign in the first round.

Itinerant career
After leaving Leverkusen in the 2000/01 season, Greško spent a season and a half with FC Internazionale Milano and briefly joined Parma FC before moving to Premier League side Blackburn Rovers FC during the 2002/03 season. He made 40 English top tier appearances in three and a half seasons at Ewood Park and joined 1. FC Nürnberg last season, playing 15 games and scoring once. Leverkusen have already brought in Theofanis Gekas, Lukas Sinkiewicz, Hans Sarpei, Sascha Dum and Manuel Feridrich.
