Croatia's coach doesn't want gays hin his team

January 22, 2004

ZAGREB — Croatia's national football team coach Otto Baric said in an interview Wednesday that he does not want gays in his squad because he considers homosexuality as "abnormal and should not be practiced by young people".

"I know that there are no gays on my team, I can spot one immediately and I don't want to have them on my team." Baric told the Jutarnji list daily.

The gay rights organisation "Iskorak" (Step forward)said Baric, who will coach Croatia at Euro 2004 in Portugal, was one of the biggest homophobics in the country, and that they would cheer for England and not Croatia in Euro 2004. –Sapa-DPA
