The influence of Czech football was present in Split until World War II. I forgot to say that at the end of the 30's in Split as a player and coach came celebrated Czech football player- Jiri Sobotka (23 caps, 8 goals for national team, played the final world cup 1934. Best shooter of the domestic championship with Raymond Braine-1934) . So even in Zagreb (club Građanski- after 1945.-Dinamo) all coaches until 1945 were strangers. Especially from Hungary, but also from Austria and England. All of them have certainly played an important role in joining these parts of Europe with the rest of Europe in football in that time.
