Hajduk Split Fans Against American Investors: “We Are Ready For War – Total Resistance”

The American consortium who have met this week with the Mayor of the Croatian city of Split and the President of Hajduk Split football club to discuss buying out the club, will not be so readily welcomed by the club’s hardcore fans.

Hajduk Split’s faithful fan base ‘Torcida’ are strongly opposed to the idea of their club becoming another Liverpool FC and becoming owned by Americans, and say they will go to ‘war’ to prevent any sale.

“As far as we are concerned, we are ready for war, 100% mobilisation and resistance till the end. Hajduk is mine, yours, ours, never theirs,” said one Torcida member, whilst another message claims that nothing will be sold without Torcida reacting. Opposition to the American consortium, which includes NFL star Ndamukong Suh, was coming in thick and fast on the Torcida Facebook page yesterday. Split Mayor Ivo Baldasar said earlier this week that the Americans are deadly serious but the decision to sell the club would go to a referendum.
