The well-known Bosnian coach Vahid Halilhodzic spoke about the announced friendly match between Russia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Recall that the football associations of both countries agreed to hold such a sparring in November in St. Petersburg.
“The announcement of the match between the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Russia is impudence and a provocation. I believe that all our players should refuse to take part in this match. Everything must be done so that the duel with Russia does not take place. Because if it takes place, it will be the end of the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team and our football federation. It will be very difficult for football players to return to their clubs because everyone will condemn their participation in such a match.
Those who in our federation voted in favor of hosting this match should resign as a matter of urgency. Fans, future and current players, must resist this game, because it will be our shame. Some influential people from France have already called me, and I told them that I do not believe that this match will take place.
Even because of the very organization of this match, Bosnia and Herzegovina has already lost the confidence of FIFA and UEFA. Of course, they won’t say this publicly, but there will be many consequences for our federation, and it will take a lot of time to restore the lost trust, ”Bosnian edition N1 quoted Halilhodzic as saying.
