“It was clear that Nikola Jurčević would leave the national team. I want to talk briefly. They bid farewell to him because the result was not satisfying,” Azerbaijani football player Javid Huseynov said, commenting on the resignation of head coach Nikola Jurčević.

The 31-year-old midfielder said he remembers Jurčević as a good man: “He was a good and calm person. However, he could not benefit the national team. The fact that we had to face tough competitors in the Euro-2020 qualifying round also affected our results.”

“Probably the best coach for our team is Robert Prosinečki. We say it everywhere.”
