At Chmel Blšany Pudil used to play left back in defence and scored two goals in eleven appearances. After six months Pudil joined FC Slovan Liberec. Though making twelve appearance in his first season, Pudil soon became a member of the first team which would win its second league title with Pudil making 29 appearances and scoring three goals. During the season, Pudil scored the first goal of his career in a 2-2 draw against Příbram on 7 November 2005. Throughout the season, Pudil would establish himself in the starting eleven at the club.

In 2007, he had a trial with English side Watford, but manager Aidy Boothroyd decided not to sign Pudil on a permanent contract.

In the 2007–08 season in which he played three games for Slovan Liberec, Pudil leave Příbram to join SK Slavia Praha a loan for a season and made his debut on 15 September 2007, in a 0-0 draw against Baník Ostrava; Four days later, he made his Champions League in a 2-1 win over Romanian side Steaua București.

In the UEFA Champions League third match in the Group Stage, Pudil was in the squad when Arsenal thrashed Slavia 7-0. Six days later after the 7-0 loss, Pudil played against his former club in a 1-1 draw; but the next meeting soon happened again six months later, when Pudil set up a goal for Zdeněk Šenkeřík, to score the only goal in the game. Following Slavia Praha Champions league elimination to UEFA Cup, Pudil set up a goal for Matej Krajčík to make it 1-1 against Tottenham Hotspur in the second leg. However, Slavia Praha lost 3-1 on aggregate, having lost against them in the first leg. On the final game of the season, Pudil scored in a 2-2 draw against Baumit Jablonec. At the end of the season, Slavia Praha won the league title. Due to his flamboyance and controversial lifestyle, Slavia Praha had decided against signing Pudil.
