Czech Republic former international midfielder Karel Poborsky will rejoin the national team as its technical manager, the Czech and Moravian Football Federation announced on Thursday. Mr Poborsky will take up the new post for the friendly against Austria in August but will join the group earlier to help the team's preparations for the Euro-2008 qualification group game against Wales on June 2nd. Mr Poborsky said that he was delighted with the offer and had accepted it gladly. The former Manchester United and Lazio Rome player retired from the Czech international team in July last year after its disappointing exit from the last World Cup.
