FORMER CROATIAN STAR, IGOR STIMAC APPOINTED AS INDIAN FOOTBALL TEAM’S COACH

ANM News Desk: Former Croatian player Igor Stimac was on Wednesday appointed the head coach of the Indian football team for a two-year term. The national team has been without a coach since the departure of Stephen Constantine in January.

51-year-old Stimac, who was part of Croatia’s 1998 World Cup squad that finished third in France, comes with an experience of over 18 years in coaching, structuring, and developing players internationally.

As a coach, Stimac’s major achievement was guiding Croatia to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. During his tenure as the national coach of Croatia, he handed debuts to the likes of Mateo Kovacic, Ante Rebic, Alen Halilovic, and Ivan Perisic, among others.
