Dinamo Zagreb coach Mamic resigns days before Spurs clash after jail sentence ruling

Dinamo Zagreb manager Zoran Mamic has resigned just days before the second-leg of their Europa League clash with Tottenham.

Mamic has resigned after being sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.

Dinamo's preparations for their Europa League clash with Tottenham on Thursday are now in disarray following the news.

Mamic stepped down immediately as Dinamo coach following the confirmation of his sentence, the Croatian side announced.

"Although I don't feel guilty, I resign as I said before I would do if the sentence was confirmed. I wish all the good luck to the club," said Mamic via the statement.

Dinamo have revealed their new head coach will be former Dinamo player Damir Krznar.

"The Supreme Court has confirmed the Osijek Municipal Court's verdict sentencing Zdravko Mamic to six and a half years of imprisonment for the embezzlement of 116 million kuna (£13.4 million) from Dinamo football club," said the statement published by HRT.

"Zoran Mamic's sentence has been reduced to four years and eight months from four years and 11 months, while Milan Pernar had his sentence reduced to three years and two months from four years and two months."
