The Croatian Football Federation hereby notifies the public that Ognjen Vukojević has been relieved of his duties as an associate of the coaching staff of the Croatian national team by decision of the management of the Croatian FA, and that he will no longer be a member of the Croatian delegation at the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Vukojević published a controversial video on social media after the match between Croatia and Russia in the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup. The FIFA have opened a disciplinary procedure on the matter.

The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has decided to revoke Vukojević's team accreditation at the FIFA World Cup and to relieve him of his duties as an observer for the Croatian national team.

HNS hereby apologizes to the Russian public for the actions of a member of the Croatian delegation.

Ognjen Vukojević and Domagoj Vida likewise apologize for their statements, which were in no way intended to have political connotations, yet which unfortunately left room for such interpretations.
