But surely, any Prem team looking for a manager should be going for Eddie Howe. I've been told many times over that he's the best manager available.

Maybe they mean best available for us. Realistically a prem league club has a bigger pool to choose from.

He wouldn’t stand for such (below) average tripe for one. The minute he arrived here we shot up that table, his passion in that dressing room would be immense.

Croatia national team[edit]

On 5 July 2012, Štimac was appointed as the new Croatia national football team manager, after the departure of his former national team teammate Slaven Bilić. His first match as Croatia manager came in a friendly game against Switzerland at Poljud Stadium, which ended in a disappointing 2–4 loss.[15] Despite that loss, Croatia entered the 2014 World Cup qualifies in decent fashion, taking 16 points from first six games. However, the results were not representative of Croatia's form on the pitch, as the team only had a goal difference of +7 from those six matches and scored the majority of their goals from set pieces, counterattacks, and defensive errors by their opponents.[16] Then started a period of very poor results starting with a 0–1 loss to Scotland at Maksimir on 7 June 2013.[17] Following this Croatia lost 0–1 in a friendly match to Portugal on 10 June 2013 and then barely beat 148th ranked Liechtenstein 3–2 in a friendly match thanks to an 86th-minute goal by Eduardo on 14 August 2013.[18][19]

In their next world cup qualifying match, Croatia drew 1–1 against rivals Serbia in Belgrade, despite only having one shot on target and two shots overall.[20] This was followed by another loss at home at Maksimir, this time to eventual group winners Belgium with a result of 1–2.[21] With only one World Cup qualifying match to go, Štimac had become widely unpopular in Croatia with one poll conducted by popular domestic newspaper 24sata resulting in 98% of voters in favor of sacking Štimac.[22] On 15 October 2013, Croatia lost their final World Cup qualifying match 0–2 against Scotland.[23] After the 0–2 loss to Scotland, Štimac tendered his resignation to the HNS president, former star footballer and national team teammate of Štimac, Davor Šuker. The following day, Šuker accepted his resignation.[24] Croatia ending qualifying as the second to last ranked second place team, having only one more point than last placed Denmark, thus taking the final play-off round spot.

Despite of some criticism Štimac managed to take the FIFA Ranking of Croatia to 4th position just behind Spain, Germany and Argentina, respectively.[25] Players like Mateo Kovačić[26] and Alen Halilović[27] also made their debuts for the Croatia national team during Štimac's stint.

Zadar[edit]

In the beginning of 2015, Štimac was named as new manager at Prva HNL club Zadar.[28] Štimac quit after only six months in charge, as club was administratively relegated to second division by the licensing board of the HNS due to financial irregularities 3 games before the league ended.[29] Following Štimac's resignation, Zadar club president Josip Bajlo said, "I would like to thank Mr. Štimac for the five months that he has worked in Zadar, and he has still done the best in such situation".[30]

Sepahan[edit]

On 12 November 2015, he became head coach of Sepahan, replacing Hossein Faraki. He resigned as Sepahan head coach on 20 April 2016, after a run of unsuccessful results which led Sepahan in the 11th place and out of both season's cups, Hazfi Cup and AFC Champions League.[31]

India national team[edit]

On 15 May 2019, the All India Football Federation announced him as the country's head coach after the departure of Stephen Constantine.[3] His first campaign with India was 2019 King's Cup where his first match as head coach was against Curaçao, which ended up as 3−1 loss[32] where he has given six players their international debut[33] but in the next match against the host Thailand he managed the team to a 1−0 victory acquiring the third place in the tournament and his first win after his appointment as the head coach.[34]

For 2022 World Cup qualification, his campaign with India started with a 1–2 home loss to Oman,[35] but steered the team to earn a respectable point after managing a draw against the 2019 Asian Champion and 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts Qatar.[36] Despite this, India only managed draws against much lower ranked teams, Bangladesh at home and Afghanistan in away.[37][38]

Other[edit]

In May 2018, the official fan group of Derby County asked for Štimac to replace Gary Rowett as the club's manager.[39]
