Athletistic/Football. Famous Bosnian coach Vahid Halilhodzic, known for his work with Lille, PSG, Dynamo Zagreb, national teams of Japan and Morocco, is very unhappy that the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina can play in Russia.

It is better to play with Kyrgyzstan than with Bosnia. But does that make sense?

“The news of the match between the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Russia is impudence and a kind of provocation. I think that all players should decide not to take part in it. Everything must be done so that it does not take place. And if it does, it will be the end of the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the federations. It will be very difficult for football players to return to their clubs because they will condemn their actions.

Despite the fact that it is a friendly match, FIFA and UEFA will probably have a different view of our football association. Yes, because of the very organization of this match, Bosnia and Herzegovina has already lost the confidence of FIFA and UEFA! Since this is politics, it will not be said publicly. But the consequences will be many for our federation, and it will take a long time to restore confidence.

Those who voted for this game must resign urgently. Fans, future and current players, must resist this game, because it will be our shame. Who will play, Zelkovich (president of the Bosnian Football Federation. – Approx.) or Dodik (leader of the Bosnian Serbs. – Approx.)? It is a provocation. Some influential people from France have already called me, and I told them that I don’t believe this match will take place,” said the Bosnian N1 quoting Halilhodzic.
