Former Hajduk Split Captain Signs for Club’s Biggest Rivals

CroatiaFormer Hajduk Split captain Franko Andrijašević has done what was once considered unthinkable in football, and would often lead to death threats, but with modern-day money dominated football, and players now changing clubs like their underwear, his move to his former club’s biggest rivals is not much of a deal as it used to be…

The 23-year-old former Hajduk Split midfielder is one of Dinamo Zagreb’s summer signings, and he couldn’t be happier with the move.

“I am very happy and satisfied that I have come to Dinamo. I would like to thank Hajduk for everything because they brought me up, but this is a step forward in my career. Dinamo is a big club which constantly wins trophies and plays in European competitions. They have big ambitions and coming here is a huge challenge for me,” said Andrijašević, who has already featured in a preseason match for the Croatian champions, who start the season with Champions League qualifying later this month
