PRAGUE, Czech Republic — Former Czech Republic striker Milan Baros has returned to the Turkish top league to play for Antalyaspor.

The Turkish club says on Tuesday that Baros has signed a contract for the 2013-14 season.

Baros returned to Czech club Banik Ostrava — where he started his career — early this year after he terminated his contract with another Turkish side, Galatasaray.

Baros left Banik in 2001 to join Liverpool and won the Champions League with the English club in 2005. He also played for Aston Villa, Lyon and Portsmouth before signing in 2008 for Galatasaray, where he scored 48 goals in 93 appearances.

The 31-year-old retired from international football after last year’s European Championship.
