When Croatian Politicians Retaliate with Hajduk in Zagreb (Video)

A Croatian politician has done what most people wouldn’t dare do in Zagreb.

While there are many unwritten rules about living in Croatia, when it comes to the football rivalries in the country, that is something you would be silly to cross. This is especially important to keep in mind when talking about the eternal rivalry between Hajduk Split and Dinamo Zagreb. Today we bring you a story of a brave soul, er, politician, who put himself on the front line of Croatian football’s never-ending battle, all for the love of his club. 

One of the funnier stories from the wonderful world of Croatian politics comes from MOST party representative Miro Bulj. Originally from Sinj, it comes as no surprise that the politician would be a fan of Dalmatia’s beloved football club Hajduk Split – and as most of you reading are already aware, allegiance to this club has no limits. 

Because being a politician in Croatian requires numerous trips to the country’s capital for various meetings in Parliament and the like, it would seem that holding back your devotion for a football club so blatantly hated in Zagreb would be nearly impossible – though we’ve heard stories of what usually happens to Hajduk fans in Zagreb who do so, and it’s not pretty. 

Miro Bulj, however, decided that his deference to Hajduk Split knows no bounds, and just yesterday on a break from Parliament in Zagreb’s St. Mark’s Square, decided to engrave ‘HAJDUK’ in large, capital letters in a brave and bold public display. 


And there you have it, the rather unexpected support of the famous Split football club, displayed in the heart of Dinamo’s Zagreb, thanks to one of Croatia’s well-known politicians.
