Football: Slavia rejects manager Jarolím’s resignation


The top flight Czech football club Slavia Prague rejected on Saturday manager Karel Jarolím’s resignation. Jarolím offered to step down over a string of poor results; on Friday, Slavia lost 3:0 to Slovácko, failing to win for the sixth time in a row. After ten rounds of the top Czech division, Slavia has ten points and ranks tenth in the division chart, tailing 15 points behind league leaders Plzeň. Jarolím, who joined Slavia in 2005, has won two league titles and reached the Champions League with the club. Last season he left Slavia in March over poor results only to come back two months later.
