Hajduk appoint Igor Tudor as new coach
Former Juventus defender Igor Tudor, 35, has been named as the new coach of Hajduk Split after Mise Krsticevic parted company with the club. Krsticevic left in the wake of Sunday's 2-1 home defeat by Rijeka which caused the sides lying third and fourth in the Croatian top flight to swap places. Tudor had been an assistant to Croatia national team boss Igor Stimac and he has no previous coaching experience.
