Robert Prosinečki to Manage Azerbaijan

1024px-Robert_ProsinečkiFormer Croatia international Robert Prosinečki will coach Azerbaijan. The former Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder is currently in Azerbaijan where he will sign a 3-year-deal….

“We have agreed everything, I will stay here for the next 10 days, have a look at a few games in the league and familiarise myself a little with football here,” Prosinečki told daily 24sata, who will earn a reported 85,000 euros a month from the deal.

“I will sign a deal until the end of the qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup, so a three-year deal,” said Prosinečki.

Azerbaijan sacked their German coach Berti Vogts soon after they were hammered away to Croatia in EURO 2016 qualifying last month. Prosinečki will face the side he was assistant coach of when Azerbaijan take on Croatia next year. Prosinečki’s first match will be against Malta on 28 March next year. Azerbaijan are pointless after four rounds of EURO 2016 qualifying.

“They have potential. The match against Croatia was not a true reflection of this side. They will definitely be better in their next match,” he said.
