Srna & Co to Pocket €140k Each, Kovač €60k

CroatiaNiko Kovač and his squad touched down in Croatia just after 1pm on Wednesday after being knocked out of the World Cup in Brazil. The only thing now left to do is analyse what went wrong, and to divvy up the cash…

The Croatian FA, with former player Davor Šuker at the helm, and the players had agreed how the prize-money ‘cake’ would be sliced up before the squad left for Brazil. Once expenses from Brazil and the build-up were paid for, it was decided that the squad and the FA would split the money 50:50. From the squads 50%, Kovač and his management team would take 20%.

According to daily 24sata, captain Darijo Srna and the squad of 23 players will receive 140,000 euros each, whilst Kovač and his 13-strong management set up will pocket 60,000 euros each.
