Mamić in for Ivanković at Dinamo Zagreb

Branko Ivanković's third spell as GNK Dinamo Zagreb coach ends after two Group B defeats with sporting director Zoran Mamić stepping in for the remainder of 2013.

Zoran Mamić has replaced Branko Ivanković after he was dismissed as GNK Dinamo Zagreb coach.

Ivanković took over from Krunoslav Jurčić for a third spell in charge on 2 September but after four losses in his eight games at the helm, including both UEFA Europa League Group B fixtures and Saturday's 1-0 Croatian First League defeat at RNK Split, Dinamo opted to appoint sporting director Mamić for the rest of 2013.

Mamić, 42, was previously caretaker in August, overseeing a 3-2 UEFA Champions League play-off second-leg win at FK Austria Wien – though that was not enough to overturn a 2-0 home reverse – as well as a 3-1 league victory over NK Istra 1961.

A club statement said: "Zoran Mamić will be in charge of the team until the winter break, with assistants Damir Krznar and Igor Cvitanović." His side welcome PSV Eindhoven on Thursday.
