There has been a dramatic twist ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Europa League round of 16 leg against Dinamo Zagreb.
Tottenham will travel to Croatia later this week ahead of Thursday night’s tie where Jose Mourinho’s men will be looking to book their place in the last eight of the competition.
One man who will not be present at the fixture is Dinamo boss Zoran Mamic, who resigned from his position yesterday after being handed a jail sentence.
Mamic has been convicted and sentenced to nearly five years in prison by the Croatian supreme court after being found guilty of fraud alongside his brother and former Dinamo executive director Zdravko (HRT).
The supreme court confirmed jail terms for former club director Damir Vrbanovic and tax inspector Milan Pernar.
Vrbanovic, Pernar and the Mamic brothers were charged with embezzling 116m kuna (£13m) from Dinamo by siphoning off money from transfer fees and tax evasion worth 12.2m kuna (£1.38m).
The club announced that both of his former roles as head coach and sports director will be taken over by Damir Krznar.
