ViewsEdit

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."[11] He has been reported for the comment to UEFA. In July 2011, in response to his comments, he was charged €10,000 by UEFA.[12]
