Former Croatia international Robert Prosinečki has been named the new coach of the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team on Thursday, Goal.com reports.
The former Azerbaijan coach will take over from Mehmed Baždarević, the Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Federation confirmed after a board meeting today in Sarajevo.
Baždarević was sacked after failing to guide Bosnia and Herzegovina to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Prosinečki, who played for both Real Madrid and Barcelona during his career, has been given the task of guiding Bosnia and Herzegovina to EURO 2020.
The 48-year-old was appointed the manager of Azerbaijan in 2014 and after 3 years in charge, his contract was not extended.
Prosinečki was Croatia’s assistant coach under Slaven Bilic between 2006-2010. He also coached in Turkey at Kayserispor.
