Kuwait national soccer team coach shot in Serbia
Police say Kuwait national team soccer coach Goran Tufegdzic has
been shot in his native Serbia and is in critical condition.
Police in the central town of Pozarevac said Sunday that
Tufegdzic was shot on Friday in the chest by his neighbor after an
argument over a plot of land. He was taken to a Belgrade hospital
in serious condition.
Tufegdzic, who has worked in the Middle East for a decade, was
appointed Kuwait coach in 2009. He took the team to the 2011 Asian
Cup and helped it win the Gulf Cup in 2010.
Kuwait Football Association Chairman Sheik Talal Al-Sabah says
he has spoken to the coach’s wife and hopes ”his health improves
and that his family endures this crisis.”
