"My head would like to continue, but the body said so," said Baros, 38, on the Banik Ostrava club website.

"I have had health problems for a long time and the body does not work the way it used to and the way I needed it," he added, complaining of Achilles tendons.

Baros, who also played for Portsmouth, Lyon and Galatasaray, gained prominence at Euro 2004, a tournament that ended as a top scorer.
