Dinamo Zagreb head coach Zoran Mamichas tendered his resignation after a court slapped him with a four-year and 8 months jail sentence following series of offenses ranging from inciting, abuse of office, bribery, and his role in aiding and abetting the abuse of trust in business.
It is also reported that the former club CEO Mr. Zdravko, who his brother were together found guilty of extracting money from the club through the selling of players.
The court of law had initially ruled on this matter with Mr. Zoran, former tax collector Milan Pernar and ex-Dinamo director Damir Vrbanovic appealing the initial verdicts that were pronounced by the county court in Osijek. Croatia’s supreme court on Monday upheld the previous rulings but reduced the former sentence by three months.
Zdravko, who holds dual citizenship to both Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina had run to Bosnia prior to the initial Osijek verdict that sentenced him to six and a half years in jail at the time. Despite Zoran’s date for imprisonment yet to be known, Dinamo Zagreb confirmed of his resignation.
