Hašek played as a central midfielder, and spent 11 years of his career with Sparta Prague, appearing in more than 300 official games with the club, and later acting as its manager. Hašek represented Czechoslovakia at the 1990 World Cup, and was also president of the Football Association of the Czech Republic.

Playing careerEdit

Hašek was born in Městec Králové. During his 21-year career, he represented AC Sparta Prague (two spells), RC Strasbourg, Sanfrecce Hiroshima and JEF United Ichihara. With the French club, he played two seasons apiece in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 and, in his last days as a player, spent at main side Sparta, teamed up with cousin Martin.

Hašek played for Czechoslovakia, gaining 55 caps and scored five goals. He was a participant in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, where the national side reached the quarterfinals, with him as team captain; in the group stage 5–1 routing of the United States, he scored the third.[1][2] After the match, Hašek said: "We are sorry for the score".[2]

Coaching careerEdit

A coach since 1999, Hašek managed former clubs Sparta Prague and Strasbourg, as well as Vissel Kobe, Al Wasl FC and AS Saint-Étienne.[3] In December 2007, he took the reins of Dubai-based Al-Ahli.[4]

In June 2009, Hašek became president of the Czech Football Association.[5] However, on 7 July, he announced that he was taking over the national team as head coach, until the end of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.[6]

Hasek announced his resignation as Czech Republic manager on 14 October 2009.[7] On 26 June 2011, he left his role as FA president and returned to club action and Al-Ahli Dubai.[8]

In January 2012, Hašek took over the head coach job at Riyadh-based team Al-Hilal FC, replacing Thomas Doll.

In July 2014, Hašek succeeded a long-time coach Sebastião Lazaroni as the new coach of Qatar SC ahead of the 2014–15 season.[9]

On 15 July 2021, Hašek was appointed head coach of the Lebanon national team,[7] on a one-year contract.[10] After failing to qualify Lebanon to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, finishing last in their group, Hašek's contract expired.[11]

Personal lifeEdit

Hašek is also a lawyer. His two sons, Pavel and Ivan Jr, are also professional footballers.[12] He is the cousin of former footballer Martin Hašek and former ice hockey goaltender Dominik Hašek.
