Hajduk Split coach faces sack after derby loss

Croatian Times

Hajduk Split coach Krasimir Balakov's days in charge of the Dalmatian football club look to be numbered after criticism from the board about his tactics after Saturday's 2-1 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia's biggest football derby.

The board, not happy with the decisions Balakov made during the match, including subsitutions at key times, were said to have considered terminating his contract. It is believed his next match in charge against Rijeka next weekend will determine what action the board takes, reported Croatian daily 24sata.

Hajduk Split were leading the derby 1-0 but went down 2-1 after a controvesial penalty went in favour of Dinamo Zagreb. "I am satisfied over the past ten months with the working environment, with all the incredible love and support from the fans and their applause of our players after the defeat against Dinamo Zagreb at Maksimir stadium, only now I can freely say that I fully understand the saying "Hajduk lives forever" said Balakov.
