Andy Bara admits Anes Krdžalić made a mistake leaving Olimpija: “Dinamo told him what he wanted to hear”
Anes Krdžalić is one of those footballers who helped Olimpija win the double crown last season. The 19-year-old defensive midfielder left Ljubljana on loan. He initially returned to Kustošija and then signed again for his former club Dinamo Zagreb in mid-July. Anes Krdžalić returned to Maksimir because he was sure he would play, but it was a no-middleman account. Before the end of the summer transfer window, he had to move again, taking up a loan Lokomotiva Zagreb .
Andy Bara, the notorious agent who also manages the career of the Bosnia and Herzegovina international, has admitted that Anes Krdžalić made a mistake by returning to Dinamo. “I am always in favour of a young footballer playing regularly above all. That’s why I brought him to Kustosia. Albert Riera, a great player in his time, was looking for a young footballer in the winter and I recommended Anes to him. He took it immediately. He went to Olimpija and was one of the best players in the league at his position,” Andy Bara told the Dribler podcast.
“Dinamo insisted on returning. They convinced him to play. They told him what he wanted to hear. We made a mistake, and I was convinced by a footballer’s emotions. I was in favour of the transfer because I believed he could become ‘world class’ if he played for Dinamo. But when the preparations started, the confusion began. In the end, he went to Lokomotiva, but didn’t get a chance at Dinamo, even though they paid compensation for him. I’ve been through a lot in my career, but this is one of the most bizarre things. However, I know that Anes is a good footballer and that he can have a good career,” added 40-year-old Andy Bara.
