Coach to quit after row
Zahovic was replaced against Spain
Zlatko Zahovic has a fiery reputation
Slovenia's coach Srecko Katanec will resign after the World Cup following a bust-up with star player Zlatko Zahovic.

Katanec made a tearful exit from the news conference at which he announced his decision, which comes after a dressing room row with Benfica midfielder Zahovic.

Zahovic was unhappy at being substituted in Slovenia's 3-1 defeat in their opening match against Spain - but has since apologised for his foul-mouthed tirade.

"I am very sorry for the things I said in the dressing room after the game," said Zahovic.

"I am absolutely aware that they were strong words. I apologise to everybody and to the World Cup association and to Katanec.

"I felt that at the time it was the only appropriate reaction for me.

The pair have a history of differences.

Katanec refused to pick Zahovic for a friendly match two years ago after the 32-goal midfielder criticised him in the press.

On that occasion it took the president of the Slovenian FA to bring them together again.
