Gay groups in Croatia plan to complain to UEFA after the country's soccer federation president said he would not allow a gay player on the national team.
The head of Croatian Football Federation apologized on Wednesday for saying in a newspaper interview that he would not allow a gay player on the national team.
Markovic said in an interview with the Vecernji List newspaper published on Sunday that as long as he's in charge of the national soccer federation, a gay player "certainly" will not feature for Croatia.
Markovic said he was "sorry for a clumsy interpretation. It was not my intention whatsoever to insult or hurt anyone."
