Bišćan draws on historic win for motivation

Igor Bišćan tells UEFA.com about his fond memories of winning at AFC Ajax almost 13 years ago as his GNK Dinamo Zagreb team-mates prepare for a pivotal game in Amsterdam.

With GNK Dinamo Zagreb having failed to claim a single point from their opening three UEFA Champions League Group D games, experienced defender Igor Bišćan is drawing on the memories of 1998/99 to help prepare his team-mates for the challenge ahead against AFC Ajax in Amsterdam.

Almost 13 years ago Bišćan was a member of the Dinamo side who won 1-0 in Amsterdam but, injured this time round, the former Liverpool FC man has told his team just to enjoy the occasion as they seek a victory which would keep their qualification hope alive. Watch our exclusive interview with him above.
