Zagreb coach fired after rout

Have your say

Dinamo Zagreb sacked coach Krunoslav Jurcic after ending their Champions League campaign with a 7-1 home rout by French side Lyon last night, club officials said.

The miraculous result saw Lyon qualify for the group stages of the tournament after they overcame a 3-point and 7-goal deficit on Ajax, who lost 3-0 at home to Real Madrid in the final match. Dinamo failed to get a point in the section.

“This was an embarrassing end to our interest in Europe this season,” the club’s executive director Zdravko Mamic told Croatian media.
