Coach Igor Cvitanović: This is a beautiful story and we are glad to have the opportunity to participate

The young Dinamo players will start a new competition next week, the prestigious Al Abtal International Friendly Cup. This friendly tournament is promoted by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Sports.

- This is certainly a beautiful story and I am glad that our young players will have the opportunity to face other quality teams. It’s a great opportunity to see where we are and what we are at this stage. The schedule is, admittedly, a bit hectic and tight, most of these footballers play the Croatian Second Division. The schedule is tough, but we will do our best. Every game against such great rivals certainly means a strong additional motive for them, it is clear that they will want to promote the club and themselves in the right way. We will do everything to make Dinamo look good and present itself properly in a friendly tournament - said the coach Igor Cvitanović.

The invitation to participate in such a tournament is just another confirmation of the great work, but also the reputation of Dinamo's youth academy.

- We all know that Dinamo's academy is very respectable all over the world, not only in Europe. For me personally, and certainly for the young players and everyone in the club, it is a great honor and privilege to participate and compete together with the best teams around the world. I would also like to thank my colleague Romeo Jozak who helped a lot in this project.

Players and coaching staff will travel to Spain on Tuesday: 

- We are traveling on Tuesday already, which means that we will do Covid-19 test and training on Monday. After that, on Tuesday morning we had our flight to Barcelona. The plan is to play about one game per month. We have five matches in the group stage, the best team will qualify for the finals in May 2022.

Cvitanović is especially happy that his former club, Real Sociedad, will be in Dinamo's group.

- I am especially glad that we will play against Real Sociedad, I am looking forward to meeting the people from the club. I probably know some of them from the past. I will find out whether there is someone in their U-19 team from my generation. We have a good and quality group, Real Sociedad, Olympique Marseille, Valencia ... I think we can play with everyone equally - concluded coach Cvitanović.
