Zagreb boss steps down after being SENTENCED to prison

Zoran Mamic

Dinamo Zagreb manager Zoran Mamic has resigned after being sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.

Dinamo’s preparations for their Europa League clash with Tottenham on Thursday are now in disarray following the news.

Zoran Mamic stepped down immediately as Dinamo coach following the confirmation of his sentence. He said: ‘Although I don’t feel guilty, I resign as I said before I would do if the sentence was confirmed. I wish all the good luck to the club,’

Afterwards, Dinamo revealed their new head coach will be former Dinamo player Damir Krznar.

Mamic’s brother Zdravko, Dinamo’s former executive director who is at large in neighbouring Bosnia, also had his sentence confirmed by the court as did former tax official Milan Pernar and former Dinamo director Damir Vrbanovic.

‘The Supreme Court has confirmed the Osijek Municipal Court’s verdict sentencing Zdravko Mamic to six and a half years of imprisonment for the embezzlement of 116 million kuna ($18.26 million) from Dinamo football club,’ said the statement published by HRT.

‘Zoran Mamic’s sentence has been reduced to four years and eight months from four years and 11 months, while Milan Pernar had his sentence reduced to three years and two months from four years and two months.’

The court also confirmed the three-year prison sentence for former Dinamo director Damir Vrbanovic.

They were charged with tax evasion worth 12.2 million kuna ($1.9 million) and for siphoning off 116 million kuna from transfers of players from Dinamo.

The Croatian champions are at home to Tottenham on Thursday in the return leg of their Europa League round of 16 return leg after the English side won the first leg 2-0 last week.
