† Appearances (goals)

Vlatko Marković (1 January 1937 – 23 September 2013) was a football player, football manager, and former president of Croatian Football Federation.[1]

Marković was born in Bugojno on 1 January 1937. In 1945, his uncles died as part of the Croatian Armed Forces at Bleiburg.[2] In SFRY, his father spent over 15 years in prison for possessing illegal firearm.[2]

He played for: Iskra (Bugojno), Čelik (Zenica), Dinamo (Zagreb), Wiener SC (Vienna).[3]

From 1958 until 1959 he played three matches for Yugoslavia national under-21 football team, and from 7 May 1961 until 30 September 1962 he played defense for Yugoslavia national football team and scored one own goal in 16 matches. He played in all matches on 1962 FIFA World Cup when Yugoslavia finished 4th.[3]

After he finished his playing career, he coached Zagreb (Zagreb), Standard de Liège (Liège), OGC Nice (Nice), Hajduk (Split) and Dinamo (Zagreb). With Dinamo he won Yugoslav Cup in 1980.[3]

He was elected president of Croatian Football Federation on 18 December 1999.[4] He was reelected in 2002 and on 16 December 2006, again with unanimous support.[5] He resigned at 15 May 2012.[6][7]

He died at Zagreb in 2013. He was 76.[8]

Personal views

In November 2010, Marković spoke out against gay footballers, telling both the Croatian Večernji list and the Serbian Večernje novosti that, "As long as I'm president [of the Croatian football federation] there will be no gay players. Thank goodness only healthy people play football."[9] He has been reported for the comment to UEFA. In July 2011 he had to pay 10.000 Euro to UEFA, because of his words against gay footballers.[10]
