Davor Suker

Where is Davor Suker now?

Davor Suker, the legendary Croatian striker, retired from playing in 2003 after a two-year spell playing in the Bundesliga with 1860 Munich.

One of the all-time great Croatian footballers, Suker won many individual titles during his illustrious career including the Golden Shoe for the top scorer at the 1998 World Cup Finals and the Croatian Footballer of the Year award on five occasions.

Suker was also runner-up to Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane in the 1998 Balon D’Or awards and was third in the FIFA World Player of the Year in the same year.

He also won La Liga, the Spanish Cup and the UEFA Champions League during his time at Real Madrid.

Although Suker only spent one season with Arsenal, he had an impressive goals-to-starts ratio with 10 goals in 15 starts in all competitions but he joined the club at a time when Henry, Bergkamp and Kanu were the first choice forwards and he was often used as a substitute.

Upon retiring from playing, Suker set up his own football academy which had camps all over Croatia but this has since folded.

After spending time working as a football agent, Suker now concentrates on his various business interests which include his own brand of beer called ‘Davor’ which is the third best-selling beer in Croatia.

He is also part-owner of a real estate company on the Costa Blanca with Spanish singer Julio Iglesias.

In 2012 Davor Suker was appointed in his current role as president of the Croatian Football Federation and in March 2015 he was elected as a member of the UEFA Executive Committee, becoming the first Croatian in this governing body of UEFA.
