Niko Kovač Interrupts World Cup Preperations to Visit Flood-Hit Region

CroatiaCroatia’s football coach Niko Kovač, together with brother Robert and striker Ivica Olić, have spent much of Wednesday morning surveying damage in flood-hit regions of eastern Croatia…

Kovač intereputed World Cup preperations today to visit the region devestated by flooding, and was quick to show his support for those the flood victims.

“If we fight on the pitch like they have here then it will be all good,” said Kovač, before adding.

“Us Croatians in these situations know how to show our big hearts and unity, and as much as it is hard to see this devestating place, I am strengthened to see how much people are ready to help each other,” said Niko, before thanking all those who rallied around in this difficult time.

Kovač said he has agreed with capitan Darijo Srna that the players will donate some of the match fees from the World Cup to help flood victims, whilst gate takings from Croatia’s friendly with Mali this month in Osijek will also go to those in need. (pic: Drago Sopta)
