Mamić stated in a press conference on Tuesday, “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.”
