Croatian Court Rules Against Soccer Chief’s Homophobia


The Croatian Supreme Court has ordered the former chief of the country’s national soccer federation to publicly apologize for his homophobia. When a reporter asked Vlatko Markovic if he’d ever met a gay player, he explained, “No, fortunately football is only played by healthy people. As long as I am president, I won’t permit any gay footballer.” The Court ruled that he must pay to publish his apology and the court’s ruling in local newspapers.
