Zdravko Mamic shot in the leg

A crazy story has broken out of Croatia on Tuesday involving Zdravko Mamic.

Mamic is extremely well connect in Croatian football, and not always for good reasons.

Until 2016 Mamic was the executive director of the Croatian football club Dinamo Zagreb. But he was forced to resign following his arrest over transfer irregularities

Mamic has been implicated in tax evasion and bribery issues. Croatian authorities have accused Mamic of embezzling the equivalent of $17.3m of Dinamo Zagreb’s money since 2008.

On Tuesday, Mamic has been shot in the leg during, what’s being described, as an assassination attempt.

Mamic victim in an armed ambush

According to Sata 24, unknown attackers shot Mamic in the leg in a town called Zidine near Tomislavgrad.

Two men “came out of the woods, ran at Mamic, and escaped in a car”, reports Bljesak.info.

Mamic was reportedly ambushed during a private visit to Tomislavgrad. He’s known for going there at this time each year on the anniversary of his father’s death.

Mamic is not thought to be in a life threatening situation,

Dinamo Zagreb statement

Dinamo Zagreb has released a statement after the attack saying:

GNK Dinamo was horrified by an armed attack and attempted assassination of Zdravko Mamić’s advisor on Tuesday, August 22, in Tomislavgrad.

We absolutely condemn the attack.
