His 20 years of experience have also allowed him to lead his nation’s U-21 on two separate occasions with a wealth of expertise. The Blues will compete in the qualifying round for the 2023 Asian Cup alongside Jordan, Indonesia, and Nepal, hosted by Kuwait on June 8.

The Czech football manager and former midfielder Lavicka played for a number of Czech clubs, including Skoda Plzen, RH Cheb and Sparta Prague. After the Czech Republic’s national league began play in 1993, he played one season in the Gambrinus liga towards the end of his career.

During the Czech Golden Ball awards in 2006 and 2007, he was voted Coach of the Year. In February 2009, he was appointed the new manager of Australian A-League club Sydney FC along with his Czech counterpart Michal Zach as assistant coach. Lavicka signed again to manage Sydney FC for the 2010–2011 season in a bid to get the club another A-League title. He was successful in managing Sydney to their second title in the 09/10 A-League season. It was 05/06 when Sydney won their first title.

In the 2013-14 Czech league, Sparta Prague finished first, obtaining 79 points from 30 games and losing only once. Lavička followed up this success by winning the Czech cup in the same season, defeating Rivals (and league runner up) Viktoria Plzen on penalties. Sparta went on to win the 2014 Czech Supercup 3-0, once again against rivals Plzen.

Lavicka signed on as the Under 21 Czech Republic manager in 2015, prior to the start of qualification for the 2017 European Under 21 championship. Lavička guided the team to the top of their qualification group with 7 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss from 10 games, resulting in direct qualification to the final tournament.
