The current manager of the Czech Republic national team is Jaroslav Šilhavý. Šilhavý was born in Plzen in 1961 and has been in his current position since 2018. Before making the moeve into management, Šilhavý had a decent playing career in his homeland in which he played 465 times and scored 25 times as well as representing Czechoslovakia at 'B', under-21 and senior level.

A defender by favoured position, Šilhavý's youth career began in 1967 aged just six years old. He played for a local youth team called TJ Chotesov from 1967 to 1975 before relocating to CSAD Plzen in 1975. He played in the CSAD academy for three years before being scouted by Skoda Plzen. He remained in Skoda's academy for a year before graduating to the senior team in 1979. Over the course of the 1979/1980 season, Šilhavý played eight times in Plzen's established back-four. However, owing to the fact that he was unable to truly nail down a starting spot with Plzen, he decided to seek pastures new in 1980. It was a search which ended in Šilhavý reaching an agreement with RH Cheb; it would prove to be one of the most important decisions the young defender would make in his footballing career.

For Cheb, Šilhavý would go on to make almost 25o league appearances and score nine goals over a nine years period. It was a record which greatly endeared him to Cheb's loyal fanbase who were huge admirers of Šilhavý'S commitment and pride when donning the club shirt. During this time, the defender began to establish himself as semi-regular players for Czezchoslovakia - he represented them four times during his Cheb days.

After over a decade of service to Cheb, Šilhavý moved on to SK Slavia Prague, probably the most high-profile club he played for throughout his career. In four seasons, he made 83 appearances and scored three goals. However, his time with the Czech giants was one full of 'what-ifs' - they finished runners up in the Czechoslovak First League in the 1992/1993 season, one of the only chances Šilhavý had for silverware throughout his career.

He left for Petra Drnovice in 1994 and stayed for three season with the club. Again, his time was not what it could have been - Petra lost in the final of the Czech Cup in the 1995/1996 season. This would prove to be the last opportunity Šilhavý would have to win a trophy in his career. He left Petra having made 69 appearances in four years and scoring eight goals in the same time frame.

He finally hung up his boots in 1999 after a final stint at FK Viktoria Zizkov in which he played 62 times at centre-half, scoring five goals.

Since turning his back on the playing side of the game, Šilhavý has held ten roles in management. After the most impressive of these, a return to Slavia Prague, he was offered the job of coaching his nation.
