The most prolific scorer currently playing for the Czech national team Milan Baroš is expected to be out for around two months after breaking a bone in his foot in a game for Galatasaray against Istanbul rivals Besiktas at the weekend. His agent said on Monday that he was negotiating with the Turkish club to send the striker for treatment to the world renowned German specialist Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt. The injury means new Czech manager Michal Bílek will not be able to pick Baroš for a short tour to Dubai in the middle of next month.

Jankulovski to undergo ankle surgery

Former Czech international Marek Jankulovski is also set for a spell on the sidelines: the 32-year-old AC Milan defender has been suffering from an ankle injury for some time and has decided an operation can no longer be postponed.

Teplice stay on top of Czech league despite dropping points to České Budějovice

In the Czech football league, Teplice remain in first place, despite dropping two points at home to České Budějovice at the weekend. The leaders twice came from behind in a game that ended 2:2. Level with Teplice on points are Jablonec, who secured a 1:0 away win at struggling Brno.

Záhrobská takes no points from first event of season

The Czech downhill skier Šárka Záhrobská had a less-than-ideal start to the season on Saturday, when she failed to complete the second round of the giant slalom at Austria’s Soelden. The former slalom world champion had been in 28th place after the first round, but missed a gate near the end of the second. However, despite not taking any points, Záhrobská said she felt good after the event and better than last year, when she finished 47th.

Třinec head ice hockey’s Extraliga after 20 rounds

After 20 rounds of the Czech elite league the Extraliga, Třinec are in first place, ahead of Vítkovice and Pardubice. The leaders beat Karlovy Vary 4:2 on Sunday. Elsewhere, Sparta’s crisis deepened as they lost 3:0 at home to Zlín; the Prague club are now in ninth place in the 14-club league. Pardubice, meanwhile, beat České Budějovice 4:1, but ended that game without goaltender Dominik Hašek, who sustained a muscle injury in the final period.
