Hajduk Split Saved

Famous Croatian football club Hajduk Split have been saved from the brink of bankruptcy. The Split City Council have done a u-turn today and have guaranteed a loan of 30 million kuna (4 million euros) to keep the club afloat, reported Jutarnji list.

On Friday councilors voted not to guarantee the loan, leaving the club just a step away from locking its doors and switching off the lights, but Monday’s decision now means the club would fend off bankruptcy and be able to continue operating.

“The mayor has left me to sign all the necessary documents, which are being prepared right now and should be ready by the end of the week,” said deputy mayor Anđelka Viskovic.
