Dinamo Boss on ESPN’S TOP 50 Most Influential Men and Women in Football List

zmESPN FC have named controversial Dinamo Zagreb boss and Croatian football federation administrator Zdravko Mamić on their list of the Top 50 50 most influential men and women in football…

The list, compiled by ESPN editors and writers from around the world, listed Mamić in 46th place.

Under Mamic, a character who’s never far from controversy, Dinamo Zagreb have won 10 consecutive domestic titles. The club’s domination of domestic football has raised Mamic’s influence in the game in general, to the point that for all intents and purposes he also runs the Croatian Football Federation with a rod of iron rather than the president, legendary striker Davor Suker. That power means Mamic has a close involvement with the players that Croatia exports across the world, including Real Madrid’s Luka Modric, for whom his son Mario is an agent – ESPN FC writes.

Mamić is currently out on bail facing charges of embezzlement and fraud.

Check out the full list, which includes the likes of Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, Lionel Messi and Michel Platini, here
