Robert Prosinečki (born 12 January 1969 in Villingen-Schwenningen) is a Croatian former football midfielder and current assistant manager of the Croatia national football team.

Club career

Born in West Germany to a family of Yugoslav gastarbeiters, Prosinečki moved to SR Croatia at an early age. He started his professional career at Dinamo Zagreb where former coach Miroslav Blažević sent him away, saying that if Prosinečki ever became a real football player, he would eat his football diploma. Ironically Prosinečki developed into one of Yugoslavia's most gifted and talented players, moving to Red Star Belgrade where he became a notable midfielder under coaches Dragoslav Šekularac and Ljupko Petrović, winning the European Cup in 1991.

He then played with Real Madrid, Real Oviedo, Barcelona, Sevilla, NK Hrvatski dragovoljac, Standard Liège, Portsmouth (where he is considered a legend despite playing only one season in the latter stages of his career), Olimpija Ljubljana, and Zagreb.

Prosinečki is still held as a folk hero at Portsmouth for his marvelous one man performances in the centre of midfield, his goals and assists saving the club from relegation in the 2001/02 season. It was after talking to Prosinečki that current Croatia international Niko Kranjčar decided to sign for Portsmouth in the summer of 2006.

International career

Prosinečki has 49 caps for Croatia and has scored 10 goals for his country. He was also capped 15 times, scoring four goals, for Yugoslavia. In 1987, Prosinečki was named the tournament's best player as Yugoslavia won the World Youth Championship in Chile along with fellow Croatians Davor Šuker and Igor Štimac. He then played for Yugoslavia at the 1990 World Cup and for Croatia at Euro 96 and the 1998 and 2002 World Cups. It was in 1998 that Prosinečki and the Croatian squad won third place in the World Cup, with Prosinečki scoring two goals along the way.

* In Croatian public and media he is nicknamed Veliki Žuti (The Great Yellow One), due to his football skills and hair color.

* He is one of the few footballers to have played for both the Spanish rival clubs FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

* Prosinečki became infamously known for being a heavy smoker and rumors about his ability to smoke up to 50 cigarettes a day circulated in Croatian public for some time.

* In early 2006, Prosinečki made a short comeback playing for NK Savski Marof, an amateur side based in the village of Savski Marof near Zagreb, in the fourth tier of Croatian football.

* In the summer of 2006, he was recruited as an assistant by Croatia's national team coach Slaven Bilić, with whom he has been helping plan out strategies for the team.

* He is a double winner of Franjo Bučar State Award for Sport, in 1997 as an individual and in 1998 as a member of Croatian national football team.

* Prosinečki was the lead star of a commercial campaign for Renault in Spain.

* He is married and has two daughters.

* In 2006, Prosinečki guest starred as himself in one episode of the Croatian popular sitcom Bitange i princeze.

* Prosinečki opened a restaurant in Zagreb in 2007, and called it prosikito&kalimero.

* At the end of the 2007-08 Premier League season the readers of The News have picked Prosinečki for all-time best Portsmouth eleven. He is only non-British player among elected.
