In December 2009, Safet Susic succeeded Miroslav Blazevic to become the eighth manager in the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, despite the fact that his previous club coaching record had been, diplomatically put, uninspiring.
But over the next five years, Susic would go on to become the most successful coach since the independence of the country.
Before successful campaign in 2014, Susic steered the team toward the 2012 European championship as they finished second to France in qualification before losing to Portugal in the play-offs.
Nevertheless, Susic the coach is still nowhere near the achievements of Susic the player.
He played for FK Sarajevo and Paris Saint-Germain, becoming a legendary figure at both clubs.
Susic was capped 54 times for Yugoslavia and scored three hat-tricks in his first 10 matches.
He also played in the 1982 and 1990 World Cups for Yugoslavia, and in 2000 he was officially voted the best player in the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
