Croatian Media Slam Dinamo for Poor Performance in Sofia
Croatian media did not spare their critics for Thursday night's performance of their champions Dinamo Zagreb against Ludogorets.
The Bulgarians defeated their opponent 3:0 in a Europa League Group B match, leaving Dinamo in bottom place.
"Ludogorets gave a lecture to Dinamo and effectively put an end to their European hopes this season. Everything that could have gone bad, did. Currently Dinamo has no goalkeeper, no center back, and no forward", writes the daily Jutarnji List.
"Dinamo's shameful run in Europe continues after another catastrophic result. This is their 13th consecutive defeat in the last 14 international matches", outlines the online index.hr.
"Dinamo's defense lasted only 12 minutes. The goalkeeper Zelenika proved to be too green ("zelen" in Croatian) for European matches", teased the evening news Vecernji List.
The edition predicts that coach Branko Ivankovic's time in Dinamo may be close to an end if the team's form does not improve drastically.
