Referee Janošević at home in Croatia

Danijel Janošević will referee at his first UEFA European Futsal Championship finals next week in his home nation of Croatia and speaks to UEFA.com about what that honour means to him.

Not only will Croatia be making their return to the UEFA European Futsal Championship finals as hosts next week after an 11-year absence, the nation's leading referee Danijel Janošević will also be officiating at this first major senior tournament.

The 41-year-old is not short of experience, having refereed the finals of the 2011 UEFA Futsal Cup final and 2008 UEFA European Under-21 Futsal Tournament, and he was also Futsalplanet.com's 2010 Best Futsal Referee in the World. But this will be the first time Janošević has refereed international matches in his home nation and in a video inteview with UEFA.com, explains: "It means a lot to me, because I will referee, I will present my knowledge of futsal, of refereeing, in front of a domestic audience, in front of my friends; but still, for the benefit of European futsal."
