Luboš Urban (born 19 November 1957 in Jihlava)[1] is a Czech football manager and former player.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Urban played football for Dukla Prague and Plzeň.[3]

Early managerial career[edit]

Urban was sacked as the manager of FC Viktoria Plzeň in October 2000. He had been leading the team in the 2000–01 Gambrinus liga.[4]

Urban was appointed as the manager of Most in December 2000, becoming the club's fourth manager in a year.[5] Having led Most to an eight-game unbeaten streak in the spring, he signed a contract extension in May 2001 for the next season.[6] He was relieved of his duties five games before the end of the season in the 2001–02 Czech 2. Liga, after a sequence of six home games without a win.[7]

In early 2004, Urban took over at Břevnov in the Bohemian Football League.[8] He stayed at Břevnov until taking over at Bohemians in October 2005.[9]

Bohemians[edit]

After leading the team to a third-place finish in the 2005–06 Bohemian Football League, Urban's contract was not renewed and Radim Nečas was appointed as his successor.[10] However, after just five rounds of the 2006–07 season, Urban was reinstated as boss.[11] Bohemians went on to finish the season as champions, winning the Bohemian Football League four games before the end of the season and claiming promotion to the Czech 2. Liga.[3]

The following season, the 2007–08 Czech 2. Liga, Urban led Bohemians Prague to the Czech 2. Liga title in their first season.[12] This was their second successive promotion. The following season, the 2008–09 Gambrinus liga, he led the club to a mid-table position.[13] Following the end of the season, Urban's contract was not renewed and he left after three years at Bohemians.[14]

Return to 2. Liga[edit]

In June 2009, Urban joined Czech 2. Liga side FC Vysočina Jihlava.[15] He remained in the position until October 2010, when Urban finished at Jihlava.[16]

In December 2011, Urban was announced as the new manager of Czech 2. Liga club Vlašim, taking over from Roman Nádvorník.[17] After leading Vlašim to 11th place in the 2011–12 Czech 2. Liga, Urban's contract was not renewed and Martin Frýdek was brought in to replace him as the manager.[18]
