Baždarević takes Bosnia and Herzegovina helm


Mehmed Baždarević has been chosen as the new coach of Bosnia and Herzegovina, filling the gap left following the departure of Safet Sušić.

The 54-year-old former FK Željezničar, FC Sochaux-Montbeliard and Yugoslavia player was chosen following a meeting of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Federation (NSBiH) executive board, with a mission to salvage the national team’s UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying campaign – the Dragons having taken just two points from their first four Group B fixtures.

“I am excited, happy and proud,” said Baždarević, who has been in charge of FC Istres and Grenoble Foot 38 as well as Sochaux. “This is a highlight of my career – a wish come true. There’s a lot of work ahead of me. We have no time to waste. It’s a rocky road to France.” His first match in charge will be a qualifier in Andorra on 28 March next year.
