Vahid Halilhodzic – ‘I turned down AC Milan because I made a promise to Trabzonspor’

Vahid Halilhodzic revealed that he turned down the chance to coach AC Milan because he already had made a promise to manage Trabzonspor after the 2014 World Cup.


“AC Milan made me an offer but I made a promise to Trabzonspor to didn’t accept,” Halilhodzic said.

Halilhodzic also said he is not surprised about Trabzonspor’s decision to part ways with him and that a manager always has to be prepared for clubs acting irrationally.

“It is the nature of the job, a manager always has his suitcase ready,” Halilhodzic said.

“The board were not pleased with the results but we were on the verge of securing a place in the Europa League Round of 32 and only four points off a top four place.

“We left on good terms and had a farewell meal together.”

Halilhodzic’s second spell at Trabzonspor lasted a total of 116 days. The former Algeria national team coach won four, drew eight and lost two of the 14 games he managed
