Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb have fired coach Velimir Zajec after only three months in charge.
A club spokeswoman said Zajec was sacked following a string of poor results at the start of the new season.
“At the moment we do not have any immediate candidates for the new coach,” spokeswoman Morana Durcevic said.
After three games, Dinamo Zagreb are in 8th position in the Croatian championship with four points, five behind leaders Rijeka.
The club management was also unhappy about Dinamo’s failure to qualify for the Champions League. They lost to Moldova’s Sheriff Tiraspol last week in the third qualification round and will now compete in a play-off for the Europa League against Hungary’s Gyor ETO.
Last season Dinamo won their fifth consecutive Croatian league title.
