Dušan Uhrin named Viktoria Plzen coach

Dušan Uhrin Jr. has been named coach of Viktoria Plzen following the departure of Pavel Vrba who has taken over the Czech national team. Plzen says Uhrin has been given a 2-year contract. The 46-year-old Uhrin was previously in charge of clubs in the Czech Republic, Romania and Cyprus. Earlier this month, Uhrin cut short his contract at Georgian club Dinamo Tbilisi to be able to join Plzen. He will lead the team into their Europa League last-32 tie with Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk in February.
