Susic to stay on as Bosnia boss

Former Yugoslav international Safet Susic has agreed to stay on as coach of Bosnia, he said on Thursday.

"We have reached a solution to continue to work together," Susic told the Bosnian football federation's website.

"I know we have a good team. I know these players very well and believe they have a better chance of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with me than with some newcomer."

Susic's side, bidding to reach their first major tournament finals, were beaten 6-2 on aggregate by Portugal in a Euro 2012 play-off in November.

The former Paris Saint-Germain player won more than 50 caps for Yugoslavia and has also coached teams in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
