The new owners, who signed the deal in Zagreb, will address the club’s board at a meeting on Thursday and reveal financial details of the sale. It has been reported that the Americans have purchased Russian businessman Michael Ščeglov’s majority share in the club for around 3 million USD. The City of Pula also have a stake in the club.
The group of American investors who have bought out the Pula-based club were represented by lawyer Michael Glover. Glover last year led an American consortium in a failed buyout attempt of another Croatian first division club – Hajduk Split.
