Karel Poborsky to stay in second division with Budejovice

Czech midfielder Karel Poborsky will finish the season with second division Ceske Budejovice after Sparta Prague confirmed on Saturday that he would not return to their squad, Reuters news agency reports. Sparta kept the registration for 33-year old Poborsky when they kicked him out of the squad in September for criticising the then coach Jaroslav Hrebik. The most capped Czech player in history could appear at next year's World Cup in Germany as a second division player.

Sparta are 11th in the Czech league, 17 points behind leaders Slovan Liberec, and finished bottom of their Champions League group with only two points.
