As for the Bosnian cuisine I think I will enjoy the kebabs before I go back, since everyone is talking about them. Without trying them, I just cannot go back, “explained Collina.Collina is a member of the UEFA Referees Committee and the head of referees for the Football Federation of Ukraine.He also mentioned some of the best of Bosnian football referees who judge today under the auspices of UEFA, such as Irfan Peljto and Edin Jakupović who are working hard and, as Collina hopes, will become an important part of a large team of referees and the future of UEFA.(Source: klix/ photo thestar)last_img
