“Trener svih trenera” has passed away at the age of 87 years old. Ćiro was one of the most animated and outspoken Croatian personalities of all time.
His quotes will be echoed for generations and will most notably be remembered for coaching Croatia in their first World Cup in 1998 — where the Vatreni ultimately won 3rd place. Ćiro was a personality to say the least and a Croatian legend among legends. Rest in peace.
