The Croatian football first division is now without its top two leading goalscorers after the departure of Dinamo Zagreb striker Duje Čop this week to Italy…
Čop leaves the Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb on loan to Italian top flight side Cagliari, with the Serie A club having first rights to buy him in the summer.
Čop joined Dinamo Zagreb in 2012 after a spell in Split and went on to win two league titles, scoring 60 goals in 110 appearances for the Maksimir club. His form earned him a call up late last year to the Croatian national team. In September 2014 he played in a friendly match against Cyprus, and also in November in London, in a friendly against World Cup runner-up Argentina.
The Croatian first division also lost goal scoring machine Andrej Kramarić from NK Rijeka this month to English Premier League side Leicester City. (photo / Drago Sopta HNS)
