Hašek named head of Czech FA


Ivan Hašek has been named chairman of the Czech FA. Delegates from the Czech and Moravian chambers voted overwhelmingly in Hašek’s favour over the only other contender for the post Luděk Vinš. Hašek received 167 votes overall, to Vins’ 32. After the result, Mr Hašek congratulated the other candidate and appealed to delegates to elect close associates of his to the deputy leadership, to allow for broader changes in the running of the association. The 45-year-old Hašek is a former player for Sparta Prague, as well as a highly-respected coach.
