Radoslav Látal (born 6 January 1970 in Prostějov) is a former Czech football player and current football manager of FK Baník Sokolov. He played for the Czech Republic, for which he appeared in 47 matches and participated at the Euro 1996 and Euro 2000. On 11 June 2000, in a bizarre twist, he was dismissed by referee Pierluigi Collina in the dying seconds of the Czechs' Euro 2000 game against the Netherlands. Latal, who had already been substituted in that match, was punished for what were perceived to be inappropriate words, following Collina's decision to award the Dutch a last-minute penalty.

Látal also played for Czechoslovakia at the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship in Saudi Arabia.

At a club level, Látal began to play football in SK Sigma Olomouc, where he also played most of his Gambrinus liga career. In 1994 he moved to Germany to play for Schalke 04, where he stayed until 2001. In 2002 Látal moved to FC Baník Ostrava and was a member of the squad in the 2003-2004 season, when Baník won the league title. He also won the Czech Football Cup with Baník in 2005. After that season, he ended his professional career.

He became manager of SFC Opava in 2008 and went on to Sokolov in September 2010.
