Former Croatia international
Davor Suker became the head of the national football association
(HNS) on Thursday, replacing Vlatko Markovic who had spent 14
years at the helm.
The 44-year old former Real Madrid forward, who won the
Golden Boot at the 1998 World Cup, was approved unanimously at
an HNS board meeting and he will remain in charge until the end
of 2014, state news agency Hina reported.
The HNS is also expected to appoint Igor Stimac, Suker's
former team-mate in the side that won third place at the 1998
World Cup, as the national squad manager later on Thursday, as
Slaven Bilic stepped down to become head coach at Lokomotiv
Moscow following Croatia's early exit from Euro 2012 last month.
Stimac will lead Croatia in the qualifiers for the 2014
World Cup in Brazil. The team are in a group with Belgium,
Serbia, Wales, Scotland and Macedonia.
