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

Club career

Born in West Germany to a family of Croatian gastarbeiters, Prosinečki moved to SR Croatia at an early age. He started his professional career at Dinamo Zagreb where former Yugoslavia 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 Ljubljanamarker, 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.
