Former Croatia manager Otto Baric is reportedly Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric's number one choice to be the club's new manager.
The 72-year-old coach, in charge of Croatia at Euro 2004, is understood to have met Mandaric in the Serbian capital Belgrade this week, according to
The Daily Mail.
The majority of Baric's club experience has been gleaned in Austria, where he led both Rapid Vienna and Salzburg to the finals of the Cup-Winners' Cup
and UEFA Cup respectively.
He has recently been coaching at Austria Vienna, but his contract there has now ended and he would be available to Pompey immediately.
WTF a 72 yr old in charge....
