Czech Soccer Association (CMFS) chairman Ivan Hasek has resigned from the post, local media reported on Sunday.

Hasek, who announced the news at the end of the CMFS's general meeting, said he had succeeded in stabilising Czech soccer during the two years at the CMFS's helm so much that he could return to his previous job of a coach in the Al Ahli club in the United Arab Emirates.

"I am returning where I belong, to the coach's profession. I will go to the place that I left two years ago, to Al Ahli," the Czech news agency quoted Hasek as saying.

In reaction to Hasek's decision, the CMFS's general meeting agreed to convoke an extraordinary general meeting within three months to elect a new chairman.

Hasek will be temporarily replaced by CMFS executive committee deputy heads Dalibor Kucera, Jindrich Rajchl and newly elected Dusan Svoboda. Kucera expressed regret at Hasek's departure.
