Croatia eject Vukojevic over 'Glory to Ukraine' video

Russia fans Russians advised to shower in pairs because of World Cup

FIFA, which generally forbids political statements during the World Cup, issued a warning to Vida, the Washington Post reported.

So high in fact that coach Ognjen Vukojevic and Croatian defender, Domagoj Vida, published a "glory to Ukraine" video on to social media following the win.

The HNS has since apologised for the Croatian delegation members' behaviour, and Vida also expressed regret for his words.

Fanatik report that Liverpool offered €18m for the Croatian centre-back, who has excelled at this summer's World Cup alongside Liverpool's own Dejan Lovren to help Croatia reach the semi-finals of the tournament.

Croatia have sacked their assistant coach just days before they face England in the World Cup semi-finals.

However, it has now announced that Vukojevic will no longer remain on the team's coaching staff at the World Cup.

"We can confirm that FIFA's disciplinary committee has sent a warning to the player Domagoj Vida due to his video statement following the 2018 FIFA World Cup match between Russian Federation and Croatia", FIFA, the sport's global governing body, said Sunday.

In the clip Vida, who used to play for Dynamo Kiev, said: "Glory to Ukraine!".

However, Besiktas reportedly rejected the offer nearly instantly, with their own valuation of Vida's worth said to be in the region of €35m. Football is outside politics.

"The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has made a decision 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".

"Our intention was not to offend anyone".

The 29-year-old has been one of the stand-out players for Zlatko Dalić's side this tournament, and the Reds, despite showing an interest before Russian Federation, are now even more encouraged to bring him to the Premier League.

"I am happy to speak the Russian language, I enjoy Russian hospitality at the 2018 World Cup and I sincerely hope that this message will not be understood as anything else but an expression of gratitude to our friends in Ukraine for their support - not in the match against Russia, but during the entire World Cup".

Federation Internationale de Football Association can fine or suspend players for political gestures at the World Cup.

Serbia was charged for fans' "display of discriminatory banners and messages by Serbian supporters as well as for throwing objects during the match", Federation Internationale de Football Association said.
