ZAGREB, 7 July 2020 – Former player, coach and current sports director Zoran Mamic has been named interim coach of Dinamo Zagreb.
Yesterday, Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb confirmed they had parted ways with Igor Jovicevic after just seven matches in charge. Jovicevic replaced Nenad Bjelica back in April but was let go after Dinamo’s 2-0 loss to Rijeka on the weekend.
On Tuesday, the club confirmed in a press release that Mamic will take over as coach until the end of the season.
“GNK Dinamo hereby informs the public that in the remaining three games of the Croatian Telecom First Division until the end of the 2019/20 competition season the Dinamo first team will be led by the club’s sports director Zoran Mamic.”
“The situation is such that we must not rush into a decision and allow ourselves the wrong step. European competitions are very close and we know how much it means for Dinamo and Croatian football to play in European competitions. With these three games until the end of the season, we will have time until the final decision on who will lead Dinamo in the next season,” Mamic said.
