sukerThe word on the street is that Croatian Football Federation President Davor Šuker is one of the favourites to win a place on UEFA’s Executive Committee, and on Monday the former Real Madrid striker set off on his campaign to win votes…

Šuker is one of 12 candidates, of which 7 will be selected for UEFA’s Executive Committee, and yesterday he started his campaign tour of European football federations by presenting his programme in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he met with Bosnia and Herzegovina FA President Elvedin Begić.

“The Croatian Football Federation has helped us a lot, especially in preparations for the World Cup in Brazil where we went for the first time to a major tournament. We discussed joint projects for UEFA and FIFA,” said Begić after yesterday’s meeting.

“It is an honour to be in Sarajevo with out friends. I hope that both nations qualify for Euro 2016. Of course it would be great to have the support of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Federation. We have cooperated good until now and that is how we hope it continues, we can help each other,” said Šuker.

Over the next week Šuker will present his candidate programme for UEFA’s Executive Committee to the football federations of Macedonia, Germany and England.
